It this normal after cutting back the P stem? A new leaf is now emerging and it looks better but still thin and not quite right but better. Will the banana grow out of this problem eventually or should I cut it back more. I already cut it back twice. The first time the very first leaf got stuck so I cut it back again and now the leaves are emerging but ragged looking.
I have an Orinoco that has done the exact same thing. I'm not worried. I think the cold penetrated there and I think it will grow out of this by itself.

Life - Some assembly required, As is no warranty, Batteries not included, Instructions shipped separately and are frequently wrong!

Kentucky Bourbon - It may not solve the problem but it helps to make it tolerable!

Statistics - Data that analyst twist to support the insane opinions of those that pay them.
