Re: 2018 Banana Patch: Pensacola, Florida
I had back to back overnight lows in the mid 30's this past week and everybody looks fine with the exception of a couple six foot pups showing some very minor leaf spotting. No protection.
The lower temps are effecting the nanners growth or lack thereof. I had a new flower bud emerge about a week ago and it hasn't done much. Stuck in the "ear of corn" phase. My earlier buds busted out really fast going from bud to bananas in about a week. Leaves have faded in color too from a deep green to a light dusty green. No leaf damage other than color fade.
Looks like low 50's to mid 60's for the next two weeks here.
