Default How Can I make My Banana Tree bare fruits faster?

I have a Banana Tree and its about 6 feet and giving off little sucklings (babies) I want the banana tree to bare fruits faster. Is there any kind of fertilizer for banana palm trees?

Default Ha, that comment reminded me

of the Dalmatian Movie the old school one, well the first one they came out with, when they had a few that weren't going to make it and they had to rub it on its side to make it breathe and get up. Does any one know what I'm talking about, or am i sounding dumb?

Default Yes

I remember that part in 101 Dalmations... I think there was like three of them and they were rubbed by the guy in the stomach because he had a funny feeling that he could heal a sick animal after smoking from a cigar pipe.

Default Manganese Sulphate or Magnesium Sulphate

One of those key ingredients added to your fertilizer will make them bare fruits a bit faster. watering and some TLC will help as well.

Default

if you want fruits faster only allow one or two pups too grow so they will focus energy on those 2 instead of 5 , also make sure you give it as much heat as possible even in the winter so that it will flower and fruit quiker also give plenty of water!
