Default Re: slowly killing my banana tree :(

Thanks for all the great suggestions! I gave her a good watering and wiped down the whole thing. I've been afraid of overwatering because everyone always talks about root rot, but I may have gone to far towards dry. I'm planning a trip to the hardware store to pick up some new potting soil so I can do a little replacement and get it cleaned up. Hopefully she'll start to perk up soon.

I just googled images of banana corm borers and the larvae look kinda like this bug!!! AHHH!! I wish I could get a better picture of it. I guess the best bet woud just be to sacrifice mama tree and try to save the baby?? What kind of fungicide would you recommend? would I dip the roots or the soil in it?
