Default Re: SH 3640 bunch just too darn big!!!

Everything is good. but everyone should learn a lesson from this. That is the key.

How to support a banana plant with fruit?
Your support should carry the weight of the bunch of bananas at the highest point of the stem, so that you are in effect hanging the bunch. With the weight supported there is no stress on the pseudostem.

If you support it anywhere lower, you are only moving the stress point when it is likely to snap off. ( pitangadiego )
