Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

in a zone 8 you should be getting some heat now. growth is predicated on sun, heat, more heat and fertilizer. try puting some 1/2 strength fertilizer on your bananas. If they are in the sun, your temps in the 80's and fertilized properly you should see growth within just a few days. good luck. Bananas when actively growing need lots of water too.
