What I was told about my dwarf banana--
I have been reading here about winterizing dwarf bananas, but was still a little confused so I asked the nursery where I bought it. They told me that bananas need to be inside in a warm sunny area in a 22-24 inch pot, that I should prune out the suckers, leaving only 1 or 2 and that I should continue to water and fertilize.
I live in Missouri. My banana tree is new this spring and I would say it is about 3 ft tall, maybe. It is in a 5 gallon container. It has 3 pups growing with it. I have recently brought it inside as the temperatures have dropped into the 50s overnight. It is in a warm sunny area right now. This seems contradictory to what I've read here.
Please advise, should I leave it in a warm sunny area and continue to fertilize, et c. or should I put it in my unheated garage without light, or what should I do with it?
