GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Musa is one of two or three genera in the family Musaceae; it includes bananas and plantains.
  • Around 70 species of Musa are known, with a broad variety of uses.
  • Though they grow as high as trees, banana and plantain plants are not woody and their apparent "stem" is made up of the bases of the huge leaf stalks.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Bananas will grow in most soils, but to thrive, they should be planted in rich, well-drained soil.
  • The best possible location would be above an abandoned compost heap.
  • They prefer an acid soil with a pH between 5.5 and 6.5.
  • The banana is not tolerant of salty soils.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • A banana plant's rapid growth rate makes it a heavy feeder.
  • Young plants may need as much as ¼ to ½ pound of fertilizer per month.
  • A balanced fertilizer of 8-10-8 (NPK) is recommended.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Banana plants need plenty of bright light.
  • Recommends a south-facing window and a minimum of 4-6 hours of full sunlight per day.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • Bananas need regular watering to sustain the large tropical leaves and produce sweet tasty fruit.
  • You should expect to water slowly and deeply every 2 or 3 days during the warmer months.
  • A test when to water is when the top 1/2-1 inch of soil is dry.
