Re: Oh no!! I broke my banana!! Is it over????
Cut the stem at the break/bend, do not try to save the plant above the crease.
This will only cause a choke and your plant will suffer.
The plant will sort itself out in a few weeks.
This is normal for a plant which has been grown indoors AND NOT HARDENED OFF TO THE ELEMENTS.
Wind, heavy rain will break and bend your leaves at the start of the season.
Even though I take precautions for this .....sometimes it just happens.
Before you bring them out next year ....run a box fan on the leaves for a few weeks to condition them.
Like your situation sometimes the stem bends or maybe the leaves.
Yes it stinks...
The short answer is your still good....just a set back a few weeks.
Even though precautions are made, it still happens in fact it happened today with some Bordelons....they bent just like your plants.
This happened overnight during a light spring wind a few years back.....just cut them off and get on with it..the plant whilst itself out in a few weeks
