Default Re: Is this true and typical BSV?

I'd say your ice cream banana doesn't like its' soil conditions. Either the soil is compacted, too poor, or not well draining. Is it in a lot of clay? or a place close to the house where maybe some construction equipment would have been driven through there and destroyed the air spaces in the soil.
