Developing my knowledge all the time. I love growing plants: barely any space on my windowsills, nor on my patio as it's full of pots. #renting.

Decided I’m not going outside in this wind, don’t think there’s too much damage, so checking on my houseplants! My #baby #banana #musa I’ve promised this to a friend but think it’s going to be quite a while before I can cut it off to give it to her!! 😂 10/08/19 #dwarfbanana #musatropicana

@porto This is my #banana pup it’s only the second one I’ve had as I’ve only had the plant about 18 months. The first baby shrivelled up and died last year when it was smaller than this. So don’t think this is ready to separate yet. 31/08/18 #foliagefriday

Yeah I love the banana plants. I had one a few years back, it didn't survive the winter 😞 I promised myself I'd get a musa this year, it never happened 😔 still there's always next year 😉

Last year one came up but it suddenly died on me. This one already looks bigger so hopefully I can keep it growing. @vec

Keep on feeding and watering. They're greedy beggars especially in pots

So cool!😍 How long did it take until the seed germinated?

This pup has grown from the base of its mother. I didn’t grow it from seed. 😊 @linchen

David @porto It's in a pot. I've not been feeding it though. It's growing quite tall now. And I've just noticed it looks like it might be growing a pup! If it develops well I could have a new baby banana plant! #thebananagang

Ditto Allison😏.. But what I've been told & read a large pot or ground + can't get enough water or food in the growing season 👍 but it sounds yours are doing great 👌🍌🍌🍌🍌😉 #bluefox23

A friend gave it to me last year as one of hers had pups. I’m not sure how long she’d had it. She told me she kept hers indoors so I’ve kept this one inside by patio doors. 🤷‍♀️😊 @porto

Yes came through last winter inside and kept producing new leaves throughout! I reckon it’s grown about 6” since I’ve had it! Reckon it’s doubled in height. 😊 @porto

@porto how often are you watering yours? Mine seems to be drying out very quickly and very thirsty. Watering it almost every other day. 😊
