What soil do bananas prefer when planted in ground?
Sorry if this is in the wrong place, I'm new.
I have 4 ensete maurellis, 1 musa basjoo, 1 dwarf cavendish, and 1 zebrina. I have them in pots right now but am wanting to plant them in ground as I hear they will grow three times as fast/big. I read a couple of different suggestions....one was to use as much compost as you could, that they enjoy being planted in 100% compost, another suggestion was to use 1/3 perlite, 1/3 compost, and 1/3 topsoil. Can someone please give me some advice on what to use/how to make these guys grow! I live in West Texas zone 7b, it stays pretty warm and bright here, 97* and above all week, and probably for the rest of the summer.... I hope these guys can handle the sunshine and grow like crazy for me!
Thanks for any advice anyone gives
