How to plant my Banana!

RichardC7(6b-7a)June 28, 2012

I ordered a banana tree (carolina king) from TyTy, and i got a big root system, and a pruned 6 inch stem sticking up from the roots..... so do i plant the root part, and leave the stem sticking up from the pot? im leaving it in a pot instead of cutting it and mulching it every winter, because i want it to bear fruit...and y growing season is too short for it to by itself! THANK YOU!!!
