Help, banana outgrowing the house!
Two years ago I started a red banana (Abysinian I believe). I grew it outdoors for the summer then dug it up and kept it in a heated shed for the winter. (I am in Manitoba and it gets mighty cold here in the winter). Last month we moved into a house with 12 foot ceilings and lots of windows so I thought wouldn't that banana plant look great growing in the house. Banana plant agreed and is growing way faster than I imagined. It was about 6 feet when I brought it in, including the pot. In the last month it has shot out three new leaves and they are huge. It must be 9 feet high now. I'm afraid that in 6 weeks from now it will be hitting the ceiling and then what do I do? Can I cut it back or will that kill it. It is a beautiful plant and I don't want to lose it. Can anyone help? Thank you.
