Default Dwarf Cavendish root rot? *pics*

Christmas lights underneath to help with the cold temps...

Maybe its the Arizona winter coming on as of recent? or maybe Ive over watered it?

It has a distinct smell too that I haven't smelled before, probably of rotting?

also the leaves that are brown and floppy and somewhat soft/mushy?

Ive had it on 2gph for 30min every M/W/FR recently, during the summer it was 60-90min every M/W/FR. and right now I have the water off, trying to decide on a better time schedule






What are some of the more hardy bananas that adapt to frost quite well?

I wonder If I should try to cut out some of the greener pups and put them indoors and hope they can survive?

The stems do not look rotten to me, perhaps it is just cold damage?
I don't think DC's like it much below 50, I would take a pup or two inside.
I'm sure someone with more knowledge will jump in.
Good luck!

That just looks like frost damage on the leaves to me. They will turn brown and die.

im planning on taking a couple pups out this weekend.. potting them up, and putting them inside for the winter. for the mother plant I think shes too big to try and dig up? plus the damage is already done as you can see, so should I just wrap the trunk in a bunch of burlap and keep those xmas lights on the ground for added heat and hope for the best?

Yeah I would dig them all up and bring inside. The leafs are goners but that's ok. Too big to dig up? No that's still a baby =]

Pot them up keep them in a south facing window and water lightly.
Try to grab some roots with them all, but if you loose some that's no big deal.

If you do a search for 'Over wintering' you will find some good info and other ways to store plants in the off season.

Hopefully it's not too late. DC's are rated for zones 8+
