Unhappy Waterlogged Blue Java

Recent monsoons have left one of my Blues in the dumps; sogged-out leaves around the stem. We cut the 3-year old stem down to 2" above ground. Will this facilitate further infections? Is there something I should do to 'seal the wound'?

Don't seal it, just get it into some drier dirt!

Thanx! BTW (I'm learning), will the waterlogged base hurt the pups? Should I remove them?

I wouldn't - I'd just move the mother and pups all at once to a drier location. I had to do it once with a 25' Giant Plantain and its five pups; here's hoping your Java is smaller! If not, enlist friends.

25'...!? African Rhino Horn? Even at 12', I'm already fetching someone else! Hope you got some great patacones.

Nope. 'Giant Plantain' - what we simply call Platano macho here in Ecuador. Remember too that without winters my bananas never have to stop growing (until they fruit, that is.) God, that plant gave me 6 hands of about 20 fingers each; I was making bolones de verde for months.
