We received our trees last year and both are very healthy. Very Beautiful plants. We've already transplanted them once into larger pots, and one of them is ready for yet a bigger pot (this tree is almost 5 ft tall)I'll give them a 5 when they have fruit.

Dwarf banana arrived in good health, about 6 tall from soil line. From research and other reviews, should have fast growing tree throughout the summer.

Had one of these a while back. Even here in GA I had to every year move to a larger container. Outdoors Spring/Summer/Fall. Indoors for Winter. I believe the third year it bloomed and set fruit. Had to move back indoors before they ripened. But by Christmas they were ripe and quite tasty ( a bit on the small side). By that time it was in an 18 diameter pot. Keep them well watered!

I've had this plant for almost 3 years now, and sadly, still no fruit. It's by the sunniest window and I tried to put it out in the springtime but the wacky weather scorched a few leaves in just about 10 minutes of morning Michigan sun. I put it inside now, under artificial lights--all of a sudden it's thriving and growing plush and shiny dark green leaves. It's gorgeous between the couch and the lazy-boy chair!
