I'm glad you found one Luis. I got your message and tried to reply but my reply is  not showing up in my messages, not sure you got it.  I'm banned at the other place and don't know why. Lol

Yes I have two stalks ripening and one blooming. I have 4 good cultivars but don't remember which ones are which. I put the bananas near the horse stable where I can throw manure and lots of water at them. I had one stalk of bananas last year and they were so delicious. Also had 25 pineapples this year. It was so fun giving them to friends and family.

Nice banana Luis. May it produce nice fruits for you. This year I have many stalks coming out but they dont come fully. I guess more organic matter and bigger holes. How will you fruit them? In pots?

You will need to house them in very large pits if you attempt to fruit them in pots.
