Hi! I have a question about the baby suckers I cut off my banana plants. They seem to be losing all of their leaves - is that normal? I took off 7 suckers: 4 larger, 3 small. The 3 small ones look like they may have died, but the 4 larger ones look good, other than the fact that their leaves are dieing.

Also, I cut my first fruit off and hung it today. Is there an average amount of time that it takes them to ripen once cut? The whole bunch has about 200 or more bananas on it!

And my last question is: after removing all the suckers, the remaining bunch of bananas on the last banana plant has some brown spots at the ends of 3-4 bananas - is that something that I worry about?

I'm still trying to figure out how to attach pictures here.
