Default Re: Nana super slow after roots dried out over winter

I followed all of your suggestions. Just waiting now. Thanks again so much. The pups are doing well outdoors and I replaced all banana plants with 50% sand, 25% pearlite, 25% potting soil *Mixed together*. And the corms have 50% sand 50% pearlite in the garage. I cannot thank you all enough. I will check the roots lightly in the next few days!!! Also passed on this knowledge to the FaceBook group Planet Musa! Just want to help other people prevent this mistake!!!
