Re: what's happening with my red dwarf ?

I've had my banana do that also in the past when small. I definitely think it has to do with the change in sunlight. The new leaves look even healthier than the old ones so I don't think it's a bad...

Re: Newbie

Welcome! I'm sure that banana plants will love all your rainfall and your tropical climate so you should be very successful growing them.

Re: Landscaping Pics

I think it looks great! The basjoo and the cannas are perfectly spaced from each other to give a nice tropical look that isn't too crowded and all the landscape work is definitely looking good!...

Re: Current weather

Was in the 100's here a few days ago, past 3 days have only been in the 70s! It feels like spring (or maybe Fall!). Some of the plants are really loving the break from the heat, the bananas still...

Re: Of cannas and bananas, under stress and in opulence.

Interesting pics, the healthy cannas look great! I think the reason why your first canna isnt in bloom yet is because it's a different variety than the other dark foliaged cannas in the other pics....

Re: can it be too hot for containers, even really big ones?

I think they will do okay in containers. Some bananas will do better than others. My bananas in the hottest parts of the yard usually wilt during the day and they are in the ground so I would imagine...

Re: Help Sick banana tree browning and black

Some banana species are really difficult to grow indoors because they are especially attractive to spider mites. If you can take it outdoors, that would really help it out, but when it's indoors its...
