Default Re: Deep Planted Basjoo Dying?

So my bananas pretty much remained the same from last pictures over the winter, the powdery mildew went away after a few sprays and me wiping it off. They were in the garage and the temps did drop below freezing a couple of times, at one point I threw some blankets around them just in case. About two weeks ago it said we going to get some cold temps so I moved them into the basement. Now it seems like the two big ones started to push the old leaves through. The basement is probably 50+ degrees most of the times and could push 60 when it gets warmer possibly. What should I do at this point? it is still too cold to take them outside, can I put them back in the garage? I am worried once they started to grow it may not be smart to put them to dormancy again?

I would cut off the dried up leaves with PM on them. Leave them in the basement to slowly establish themselves, and then put them out when lows are above freezing

what do you mean establish? these are pretty big plants from last year, I have no light down there so they will not grow until I move them out in May.

With the heat they will at least be pushing roots. But either way, wait until it warms up now. They don't need the added shock of cold weather after a winter of no growing.

They already went back into the garage a few days ago, I guess have to wait and see.

Default Re: Deep Planted Basjoo Dying?

So it has been so warm around here I am thinking about planting my basjoos some time soon. I do notice that some are pretty bad looking and have not much green left on them (smaller ones). My question is can I just plant them the way they are or should I try to trim the dry/rotten parts?
I would prefer to keep the work to minimum.
My second question is regarding planting the bigger plants. Since the bigger plants will go a foot under the ground, the small pupps they have will most likely end up completely covered by dirt, is this ok or should I remove them? I doubt they will survive alone after hibernating? I think I left the ones on the mother plant that didn't have roots.
