Hahaha Oh don't I know. Months ago I was HOPING that it would of been tall enough before flagging and I was just going to let the bananas rest onto the roof. Guess that plan is out now! I'm guessing since the plant isn't very hardy I might not even get that much production out of it, but we'll see. I'm going to TRY to sway the flower stalk to go opposite the direction of the leaning. But I suppose I'm going to get some 1 1/4 PVC and build a prop like I've seen some do on here. I have noticed ALL but one of my Pisang Ceylons lean like this after some time. The one that hasn't is the only one that's getting 100% full sun all day long. The others are getting between 20-30% shade time through the day. I'm sure our daily rain hasn't help either since the leaning has gotten worse throughout the day and when the new leaves have been emerging, they've acted like cups holding water.
