Default Bringing bananas out of dormancy

I noticed that days were getting longer and that we are under a couple months away from the usual last frost so I decided to go ahead and take my ensete maurelii bananas and bring them into a warmer room by the window so they can start growing.

Even with the fungicide sulfur powder, there was still quite a bit of rotting however there's still a good amount of weight and I do understand that it takes 6-8 weeks of growth to get to a decent size to bring back outdoors which is why I am activating them now.

The soil I have has not been watered at all because I want to make sure that I don't end up rotting the corms.



After cleaning them up a bit.

Did you end up putting more fungicide on the corms after trimming them up?

No. I think there should be enough fungicide and the windowsill still appears to be very cold so they haven't started growing yet. Growth may not occur until the second part of March when temperatures outdoors start drifting above freezing, but they both still have a decent amount of weight, especially the bigger one so I expect them to make a full recovery.
