Symptoms: Look for stunted growth, yellowing leaves, distorted foliage, and drooping stems as signs of pest infestation. Banana plants thrive in a tropical climate with temperatures ranging of 13ºC to 38ºC and relative humidity of 75-85%. The optimal growth temperature for bananas is around 27ºC, while temperatures above 38ºC and below 12ºC can harm the plant. High winds exceeding 80 km/h can also damage the crop. While the plant is indoors, remove yellowing leaves as needed: normally an established banana will lose one leaf for each new one it produces.

Additionally, it’s crucial to protect the developing fruit from pests by using covers or bags. These attractive and versatile plants can be a delightful addition to home gardens, providing a tropical ambiance. In suitable climates, they produce delicious fruits high in vitamins and minerals. Cold climate varieties have been selected to grow in regions beyond traditional banana zones.

Chemical fertilizers are crucial to banana plant nutrition due to their high nutrient requirements. Nitrogen and potassium are the primary nutrients needed, followed by phosphorus, calcium, and magnesium. Nitrogen is essential for vegetative growth, while potassium is vital for fruit development and quality.During the winter, water regularly and deeply as soon as the soil is dry to the touch. Also feed with an all-purpose fertilizer at half the recommended dose. Stop feeding at the end of November and resume in early March so as not to stimulate etiolated growth while the days are short and therefore light is weak. (If you’re giving your banana intense artificial light, keep on fertilizing right through the winter.)
