Default Re: Ensete Superbum Leaf Problems

Does the pseudostem seem firm and stable? A couple of years back I overwintered an E. ventricosum in the ground. It seemed to come through the winter fine but part way through the year I noticed it was starting to decline. I don't recall seeing the blackish marks like your leaves have, but when I examined the base of the pstem (especially the part just below the soil line) I noticed it was starting to rot. I never was able to save it. I wish you better luck with yours. How well-draining is your soil media?
