Default What's wrong with my basjoo?

This actually looked better in the winter LOL!
What's causing the leaves too die off so fast? It is still trying to push out new growth. Could it bee too much ground water?? There was a Pisang Ceylon 4 feet to the left that did fine over winter and then rotted in March. Raised beds will definitely help this year!

Has the weather been cool? I noticed that my own musa basjoo the older leaves got a lot of brown spots and yellowing but the new leaves look vibrant and green.. are you watering them well? Using any fertilizer? How much light does the plant get?

It hasn't been cool since Feb and the ground was wet so I wasn't watering a whole lot. I didn't start fertlilizing until early May.
It seems to be doing a little better 06/13/17

It's looking much better. Try folar spraying fertilizer once a week and mist the leaves 1 or 2 Xs a day.

Everything is fine now. It has been in the ground for about one year. I'm surprised I haven't seen a pup yet. It's probably working on something now. It's up to 4-5 feet of p-stem getting big!
