Default Re: Musa sikkimensis-the best banana for leaf hardiness?

Same as I did until last year on my basjoos. The past 2 years I just left the fried leaves/p-stems on the ground as mulch. Worked fine last year; hopefully also this one. Would love to leave a sikkim out as a test. I did this with a C. humilis var cerifera palm this winter; it's looking good so far (knock wood).

"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."
