Re: Musa/clay

Perhaps different species of Musa make a difference.  I have an edible  
banana, planted in the worst clay soil, goes through flooding at times, and  does 
wonderfully, producing clusters of the best tasting bananas every  year.  Most 
of the bananas here in this area seem to be planted  in areas where not much 
else will grow, much like cannas, or such.  Perhaps  other climate conditions 
dictate how well they do in clay....how quickly it  dries out, humidity, or 
such.  I dont' know, I can just say what my  experience has been.  Jim might have 
more perspective on this.

Do  your M. basjoo grow in this 'pure clay', or to you have to amend it
with  something(s) ? I have the same curse.
