How hot is too hot?

12 years ago

Here in Nicaragua we are at the peak of our hot season...but in essence, it is usually around 90 throughout the year, with March, April and May being the hottest and driest months with temperatures near 100 degrees daily and in the mid 70s at night.

My question is, despite daily waterings, why do bananas decline at this time of the year?

Is 100 degrees too hot for them? I always read they love heat, the more the better...but I wonder if since they are on the west side of a cement wall that the air temperature and radiated heat and lack of air circulation is too much for them to handle even with the heavy waterings? They do well the rest of the year...but this is always a hard time for them.

Can someone tell me, how hot is too hot for banana plants?
