Fast grower, takes full sun 95F+ without leaves burning. Does not seem to be very prolific, but could be because my plant was originally a tissue culture? Got bonus seeds for more Thai Black when ordering another species, and had 4 out of 10 germinate in two weeks which is very good as far as banana seeds go. Supposed to be root hardy here in zone 7 so will be leaving one out this winter. I will update next spring.
