Banana Plant in Container
I'd been wanting to grow my own bananas for a long time. Two years ago, while we were still living in an apartment, I bought a plant. I potted it, I watered it, and I placed a grow-light near it.
Last year (2008) when we moved to this house and when the weathered warmed, I placed it outside where it grew thicker around the stalk, and new leaves appeared and disappeared quickly. It spent the winter in our family room with other plants and a grow light, often without water though.
But here's the banana plant today. I'll repot it soon to give it more room to stretch out its roots. Hopefully, one day, it will appreciate my new attention to it and will give us bananas!
