Update-

For anyone’s that may be curious. The plant I think is dead. I haven’t touch it at all. But it’s browning. It’s not entirely dead the upper corm still feels solid and the psuedostem still has a nice yellow colour but there’s not much more I can do.

you know how you can dig a banana corm up, put on top of your compost pile or whatever and it will grow? take a 3 gallon pot and fill it with dry potting soil and plant it and see what happens. looks like the little devil got to much water.

Is the precursory appendage still moving?

If it is that means you still have plenty of time to figure out the problem.

It's important to be sure if it's alive or dead.

This is how I would assess the quality of the rhizome and growing point.

Some people think a firm rhizome is proof of being healthy but a dead or dying rhizome is also firm until it rots. Those fibers are the best early indicator that I know of.

Is the precursory appendage is the tip at the start of the leaf? If so, Yes. It’s still moving. Some browning of the stem but the very centre isn’t browning really at all. The growing tip has moved since reporting. Idk if it’s adjusting to indoor conditions and less humidity.
Its alive but not healthy I think. I've covered around the pot in horticultural fleece to try to maintain even warmer soil temps during night period and put a small plastic clear bag over the tip to incase its lack fo humidity causing it to dry at the top.

Thank you.

Congratulations on your progress.

Can you add more photos as the plant matures. It can be difficult to identify or rule out an identification of a plant based on a leaf but there are some characteristics to that one that makes me question whether it's a Tani or not.

Hi PR-Giants,

Interesting. I wonder what it could be...
I'll put more photos up as it grows.

thank you!
