Joy Re: New Ae Ae - brown leaf spots upon arrival

Well leaf is out and second one is on its way. No signs of bites or spots on new foliage.

As a side note ive been babying it like crazy and intially potting it with orchid soil/layer of sand + pebbles on bottom. Growth seemed to kick off after i sprinkled a little 10-10-10 general use fert. But growth is slower then the other nanners. An ideas to speed up growth.

Excellent! They are beautiful! (I think they are slow growers, but I will be interested in seeing the suggestions) ~JaNan

Southernbanana, your Ae Ae is perfect. The person that sold the Ae Ae has used Potassium nitrate to produce more green parts on the leaf. At the end of each summer I put out a little extra potassium(Potassium nitrate is also used in amateur rocket propellants). That makes them a little greener and stronger to get through the winter. Some of them get fairly green but they always come make to normal.

I got a beautiful Logees DLF from Chong and it had one big, black spot and no other blemishes. Within a week, it had the same patterns as your plant. It was obvious to me that these were caused by peircing mouth parts of insects. I did find some snails on the plant, but these pin-pricks don't seem to be their MO. I looked under each leaf and found a short, square, moth type insect. I thought they were whiteflies at first, but these were much shorter, and greyish. Keep a sharp eye out. I treated my plant and the two leaves that emerged post-treatment are fine.

J have the same problem with my Musa basjoo. It escalates specially after falls.
It starts like this



and than looks like this



Once I had sprinkled it by fungicide but it became worse. Especially when fungicide contacts with young, convoluted leaf - it burns it.

Default Re: New Ae Ae - brown leaf spots upon arrival

Second leaf opened up with 3rd on the way. Lower leaves are still turning brown and falling off much faster then other bananas, maybe plant is still going through transplant shock. Any advice on when to bring inside? Temps are falling but still in the high 50s atleast during the nite. Thinking early november but any suggestions?

Going to place ae in the ground in the spring on hope for crazy growth + pups.
