Default Re: Leaf/stem issues on indoor large bananas

This is a problem that frequently occurs with potted bananas. Cutting out is the recommended remedy, but you should also check to see if the plant is potbound, as that is a common cause of choking. Good luck. And my Siam Ruby plants ALWAYS flop over indoors. Indeed, the mom plant frequently dies on me at the end of the winter, but the pups soldier on.

"If by a liberal, they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind; someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions; someone who cares about the welfare of the people, their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, their civil liberties; someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicion that grips us; that is what they meant by a liberal, I am proud to be a liberal."
