I just joined, because I was hoping y'all could help me. I have never grown bananas before, but I received my first two in the mail yesterday from Wellspring Gardens. The Dwarf Puerto Rican has brown spots on the leaf, on the stem and on the new leaf that hasn't even opened yet, that just grew out since yesterday. Is this normal shipping stress, or does it just show that it didn't get the care that it wanted and I can nurse it back to health, or could it have one of those dangerous banana diseases?
The other banana plant seems okay, except for browning where a couple of leaves were cut off.
What should I do with this little Dwarf Puerto Rican? I don't want to never be able to keep bananas, because the first order I received had a disease! Should I trash this little guy or is everything okay?
Thanks so much!
