Default Re: Leaf/stem issues on indoor large bananas

This also happens occasionally when growing outside after wind damage or being cut. What you have to do is take a sharp knife, carefully cut through the outermost leaves stalks, one by one, vertically down the stem, and peel them away until you reach the inside layer where the newest leaf is emerging. Cut and remove everything off from that point down. You are 'clearing' the way down the stalk past the point where the leaves will then unfurl intact.
