Default Re: Leaf/stem issues on indoor large bananas

You know I have the same problem with those stupid things whether they are in the ground or in a pot. Im not sure if it is because they are just weak TC plants, or they are just so much more delicate than other types. I can't figure it out either-Ive stooped to tying the stalks to bamboo stakes. So many people I know have had them just melt like that. The first corm I brought in from Thailand 8 years ago seemed sturdier and the Thai grower told me to make sure I planted it in FULL sun and was easy on the water. So, maybe, if you give it the most intense light possible, keep it warm as possible, and go easy on the water especially during the winter months, you might be able to save it. Hey, if not, they are now available for like $10............
