What's the best food for Musa Bashoo?

I hate to admit this, but I have been using Miracal(?) Grow as food for all my deck plants. All are doing well. I have read here that bannanas should be fed something high in nitrogen. Is there a product that has the right numbers for these guys? I have some issue with sickness with my potted pups, and wonder...

The best banana fertilizer I have ever used is Milorganite as it is a natural product that is organic based. I have had record sized bananas with a liberal application of this fertilizer and it won't burn the plants.

I live in N Florida and we have bananas like weedsin our yard... My husband fertilizes every spring and fall with a cup of 6-6-6. He just sprinkles it in the clump and they seem to get really excited within weeks they are bright green and happy. Best of luck....
