Why does pot size matter?
I've read in a couple different places that it is important not to plant a small banana in too big of a pot. Why?
I've been growing Musa Basjoo and Ensete Maurelli in the ground AND in pots of varying sizes. I've never noticed any differences in growth rate or amount of growth over a Season.
It seems odd to me because a small banana in a very big pot is basically the same as the same small banana planted in the ground. Isn't it? If the roots aren't touching the bottom, how does the plant even know its in a pot?
Please educate me! :)
