Default Re: Did I do it right?

Looks good so far! Seems that things have been at least fairly successful. Overwintering is not easy, and it seems as though things are more or less solid for you. Leave on as much p-stem as long as it is solid and not rotted (white is stated, it's just a lack of sunlight that causes this color (or rather, lack of color)). Remove as much rot as you can from the reds and see what happens....bananas are surprisingly hardcore plants and may pull through once in the ground. Also, concerning your comments on D. Brazilian....I have one I got last summer and must say I'm surprised at how resilient it has been during winter. Mine was kept potted in a window and though it didn't really grow much all winter, the leaves held on it VERY well and there has been nearly no loss of p-stem diameter, old leaves, etc. This cannot be said for any of my other plants....definitely keeping this one!
Feel the beat from start to stop, dancin' and movin' from bottom to top!
RIP Tog Tan. We love you and will always remember you!
