leaning tree of washington
 
so i have a dwarf or super dwarf cavendish (can't remember) growing in a pot in my snake room. it is under 12 hours of light a day, the room stays between 70-80 year round. it has been the best growing plant i have. i give it food every or every other watering. i've had it about a year now, and it's been nothing if not healthy. but this morning, it was leaning at the base, and the base of the leaf near the soil on the side it is leaning is soft and looks folded which would be the best description i can come up with. what exactly is happening? what can i do to save it? can i do anything? thank you in advance :)

Cut the leaf off and throw it away.If the plant is one year old no way it is dwarf cavendish must be SDC

Poor root system.It is normal for the leafs to pull away from the stem as the plant grows. Leaves do not last forever.I'd place some more soil or wood chips around the plant to hold it up

It's fine... Just do what Tony said...

The leaf is a goner... But the rest of the plant looks really healthy... Add an inch or so of soil to help support the other leaves as the plant grows...

That is one of the greenest, skinniest long petiol SDC I've seen. Where did you get this plant?

i got it from hirts gardens via amazon. is that a good thing? and since you asked, no actual crotalus species however,
angolan python

she's kinda a brat, but super cool. their scales are almost beaded, and they are the only python species with scales like that
ball python

hog island boa constrictor imperator (old picture)

and not snakes but dendrobates tinctorius "cobalt" (dart frogs) (also older pictures)


and the bearded dragon

I'm pretty sure Snookie is a fan - I was talking about the frog and the LSU colors..
no worries - I guess that was about as funny as the start up question in the Zimmerman trial.

:waving:

i took it as humor. it was kinda funny. they've never been east of the cascades, and never watch television so if anything probably a UW or WWU fan figuring they were acquired in Seattle and live in Bellingham :P
