Ensete Maurelli Issues
Hey banana buddies, Iíve had my ensete since the beginning of summer and it was doing quite well! Lately, however, it seems to be stuggling.
I noticed a couple weeks ago what looked like mealy bugs on my plant (had an infestation on another plant, but I quarantined it, so I thought). I treated the ensete with my organic insecticidal soap a few times and I havenít seen any bugs since, Iíve looked pretty intently. On the underside of the leaves along the stem, there looks to webbing... not sure if itís remnant residue from mealys or evidence of spider mites (which I donít see).
Curious if this could be due to the treatments? Perhaps a relatively sudden drop in temperature, as Iíve experienced in the past couple weeks.
As you will see in the attached photos, the new leaf if sprouting damaged, as did the leaf before it. Older leaves are beginning to yellow and there appears to be black spots near the base of the stems... Iíve uploaded my photos to the gallery on this site (I think), but if you canít find them, please take a look at my imgur album and let me know your thoughts: https://imgur.com/a/pBqzlS1

Re: Ensete Maurelli Issues
Looks like the remnant of your infestation on the leaves....which looks normal.
Now with the shorter days expect to loose some of your older leaves in the fashion you describe. Mine do it also in our zone.
Do a youtube search on how to keep the plant alive over the winter.....do it now and prepare.
