Default Do you have a simillar experience?

Hi all,
I am in zone 9b. It apparently seemed that Dwf. Brazilian successfully
overwintered with strawmat cold protection as the first leaf started to move
in the spring. But the speed of its growth was extremely slow in comparison
with other overwintered bananas. Although I suspected something wrong with
the plant, I waited until the temperature came up to desirable level.
However no progress was seen, and I cut the pseudostem down little by little
until I finally reached to the point the reason of the insidence was found.
As you can see from the picture, the core was dead black while the pseudo-
stem was green and solid. No insects were found.
Does anyone have a simillar experience?
