Hey everyone!

So my name is Pam and I've posted in the dog section a couple of times...but I figured I better come in here and get some much needed instructions.

My neighbor gave me a Banana Tree sprout. His have grown about 8' or so the past summers. I live outside Nashville and direct sunlight is never a problem. Other than the amount of light they need, I don't know much else about them. I've been reading online about them, but I was hoping someone in here has these, or has in the past and can kind of guide me in getting this sucker to take roots and grow.

Any suggestions?

Pam

I have never had one myself personally - too cold of an area. But if your worried about it taking root I would try a root hormone. You shouldn't need much to do the trick. Other than that sun and water should be a good start. Hope some one else has had one and can offer more advice for you!
