When should I bring my banana plant inside?
Also to know is, when should I bring in my banana tree?
In the spring, after the last frost date in your area, you can plant your banana tree in the garden again. If your banana trees are growing in containers and they are a manageable size you can move them indoors and treat them as houseplants.
Secondly, how cold can banana plants tolerate? Banana trees (even the cold tolerant ones) prefer warm humid temperatures for maximum growth. They grow fastest when the daytime highs are 80°F to 95°F (27°C to 35°C). Growth will slow drastically below 57°F (14°C). The tops of the plants will die back to the ground at the first sign of frost.
Also know, how do you care for a banana plant indoors?
Like outdoor banana plants, an indoor banana plant needs rich, humus-like and well-draining soil as well as plenty of sunlight. In fact, indoor banana trees require bright light for about 12 hours or so for most varieties. However, you need to protect the banana plant from getting too hot to prevent scorching.
Should you cut dead leaves off banana trees?
Although banana trees do not need much trimming, cutting off old, dead leaves helps stimulate growth. Removing leaves that rub against the banana bunch helps with fruit production. As banana trees stand quite tall, be prepared to climb in your efforts to trim the uppermost leaves.
