Default Question

Hello all... I recently moved so I transplanted a bunch of bananas from my old house to bring to the new place. I transplanted them about 3 weeks ago and one problem I see is that as soon as a new shoot starts, another shoot starts before the other fully develops. is this due to over watering or over fertilizing ??? Any other tips for rapid growth in zone 9b ??? I believe they are all Basjo variety. I was also told to feed every 4th or 5th watering during the growing season, I use a 10-10-10 liquid food

Default Re: Question

The more experienced growers here may help more than me but here goes. I have had the same thing happen when potting pups and it may be what's called resetting?? Recently I started using a different fertilizer and the problem seems to have resolved in a couple weeks. The stems are growing taller and the leaves stopped stacking up. I can see deep green coming back in the leaves. The new fert. that is working so well is a 4 month time release called Classicote 15-8-23. A friend also put some on a banana that was not growing well and a week later a whole new leaf had come out. Keep in mind what your weather will be in 4 months if you use it, you don't want too much fert. in the soil come winter. I see you are in zone 9b, I am also in 9b with blazing heat and all my plants that can be covered have shade cloth over them.

Is there a problem with that?

I think you should just sit back and celebrate your wealth. If you have not
experienced that before it must be, that your growing conditions were less
than optimal at your previous site

Best,
Olaf

here is a better picture of the bunching I was referring to. no stems



as soon as a leaf unwraps, its pushing another without any stem growth
