Re: Dying Basjoo?

It just seems to have started to look worse lately. Can Bananas go dormant at room temperature with all their leaves? I haven't been watering that much (I hear it's a bad idea over the winter) but I...

Re: Dying Basjoo?

Just did and not a bug in sight. I'm convinced it's the low light since that window doesn't get much light and my area barely gets any light in the winter anyway. Do you think I should get some...

Dying Basjoo?

Hi, I grew a Musa basjoo last summer with pretty decent success outdoors. However, I grew it in a pot so I realized that I could not let it stay outside in that state. I went off to college unable to...

Re: Basjoo -- Plant in or plant out.

I live in a forest with 80 ft tall trees :P. I have the banana on the patio since that's a clear area. I love my yard I just wish I had some nice warm sun.

Re: Basjoo -- Plant in or plant out.

Sadly my yard lacks any full sun and the area it's in is part sun. I'm pretty sure that is what my growth problem is. Next year I am gonna order more and try a few in a friend's yard that has nice...

Re: Basjoo -- Plant in or plant out.

Problem is basjoo does nothing through April and most of may since temps can be in the 40s and 30s at night.... Also the summer here in the NE has been so mild I am not getting good growth.

Basjoo -- Plant in or plant out.

Hi attached are 2 pictures of my lovely Musa Basjoo. It is rather small perhaps a bit over 2 ft. It is still in a pot. I am having trouble getting the growth rates that everyone talks about (perhaps...

Re: Musa Basjoos - How are everyone's doing?

I'm just happy I finally got mine to break dormancy. Can I expect it to grow tall before mid august? It's about a foot tall now (30 cm exactly).

Re: Musa Basjoos - How are everyone's doing?

I took mine out of the soil. Potted it and kept it inside and only bring it out on warm days. It's going absolutely insane growing over an inch a day. I am doing this to keep soil temps up. I figure...

Re: Bananas in Upstate New York

Re: My first attempt to grow bananas.

Thanks so much. What type of fertilizer is recommended? And can I expect it to grow into quite a big plant soon?

My first attempt to grow bananas.

Hi I am quite new to the banana growing world, since I just got my first plant a few days ago. I purchased Musa Basjoo because it's the only one that can grow in WNY (Western New York). After I...

Hi

Hi I am new to this forum and bananas. I never thought that bananas could ever have a chance in my climate until I read about Musa Basjoo. I just put it in the ground earlier today. I'm very excited...
