Re: Help! My pups always die.
I've only removed pups once so far. I think it was in the spring. I just hacked it off with a shovel and let the cut end dry out. I had an idea about dripping melted wax on the cut end, so I tried it. Can't say if it helped or hurt them. They both survived though. I think I have a SDC from ediblelandscaping. it didn't do too much this year for some reason. I didn't think you could over water a banana in the summer. Mine are always drying out between watering. Try improving drainage and amending soil to lighten it up. In my pots I put a bottom layer of pine bark nuggets.
