Common name:
Pink dwarf banana / hairy banana

Origin:
India

Minimum temperature:
-5 degC

Description:
This banana species has a beautiful pink inflorescence which is followed by sweet pink edible bananas. Naturally the plant stays small (maximum 2 meters), and is therefore very suitable to grow in a pot or container. Already after 2 years the plant can start to flower. It is best to protect the plant against frost, but the roots can survive a minimum of -5 degC. However, the stem and leaves will die when exposed to frost. A sheltered stand without (too much) direct sunlight is recommended.

Sowing description:
Sand the seeds with sanding paper and soak them in lukewarm water for 48 hours. Sow the seeds in sowing mix and keep the soil constantly moist by covering the soil with plastic foil or glass. Let the seeds germinate in a warm spot indoors (for example in the sun or near a heater). Germination can take a few weeks or months, and can still occur as long as the seeds are firm.

Sowing time:
Whole year

Level of difficulty:
Intermediate

Ik heb alle 5 de zaden in 2017 gezaaid en 1 is er uitgekomen.
Die groeit als kool, met name tijdens de zomer gaat het hard. Er komen elke week wel nieuwe bladeren aan de plant. In het voorjaar van 2019 gaat 'ie in een grotere pot en heel benieuwd of hij dan nog groter gaat worden en gaat bloeien.
