Re: Musa dwarf cavendish double roller

... they are clearly new leaves. At five feet high they would not be 'super dwarf'. Super dwarf grow to 6ft including leaves, dwarf cav grows to 14ft :wink: Dwarf cav are the ones they mass grow in the Canaries.

Re: banana dormancy

As said it will depend on the species, and some like dwarf cav and Siam Ruby will just die.

It will need specific questions, not just Musa. Same as palms they are all different :)

Re: WILKO MUSA BAJOO BARGAIN - ALERT

If they are dwarf cav, they do not go dormant, so need to be above 10C for maybe 20 hours a day, no lower than 6C for a short time, and in the highest light you can give them. A dark, unheated garage will see them die in a very short time. :roll:
