Default Re: overwintering and moisture

Since no one has replied, I'll open the door.

Although I'm still new to this, I believe moisture on the Pstem is also bad.

Cold, humid, and wet contact is just what molds and fungus love. Since the banana is not growing in the winter, it cannot defend itself either.

If I were going to insulate the Pstem, I would make sure it, and the insulating media stayed dry. Also the corm as well...

Just my $.02
