Growing Dwarf Banana Varieties

This first image is the most recent update of how my banana plants look like:

The documentary starts here…

Zone 9B Florida, USA: I have been struggling with dealing with the neighbors’ mature oak trees being so near the fence line. Its roots has strangled and killed many of my plants and sugar apple tree. I am now cutting the oak roots back to bury 45-gallon pots sunken into the ground to grow dwarf bananas.

2. Pisang Raja banana is planted at the front near wall with six extra large holes drilled at the bottom to allow better drainage.

Note:

I am also documenting my experiences with planting in containers sunken into the ground because I am unable to find adequate information on this topic to help me decide what I should do.

Peanut Butter fruit tree (bush) grew well in a 25-gallon pot with bottom cut out. It’s been two years in the ground now. This is not my long term commitment with this fruit tree therefore it’s will be in this pot just for a a few years. Refer to my plant documentary for growing Peanut Butter Fruit tree.
