I recently placed my Cavendish banana plant inside of an inexpensive greenhouse that I purchased and now the leaves are turning yellow and brown. Is this due to a lack of water, nutrients, or the cold fall weather here in Alabama? I think I'm in Zone 8a or 8b. Should I just bring the plant inside and can it be saved?

Could be too much water, the plants are going dormant this time of year and not needing much if any water. And maybe shock from being moved to a new location.

It would help if we knew your location and growing zone, Please update your profile. Also, what is the size of the greenhouse? I know you said small, but how small is small? A 4x 4 tent type?????

1) Greenhouses get much hotter during the day than the outside temps. The plants could be scalded from the heat. If the inside temps are going over 90 deg. F, the greenhouse needs to be ventilated.

2) Small Greenhouses do very little about holding heat in, so the plant may be effected by near freezing temps. It you want nana plants to keep growing during the winter, keep the night time temps at 65 deg F & above.

3) pictures of the plant and greenhouse would help.
