Re: An Update Of My Latest Nana Plants 2018!

The Tu'u Ghia is disease resistant so does that include viruses like bunchy top? We don't have banana diseases in my region so I'm not versed but interested in learning and promoting awareness.

Re: What has caused this?

Just check the top layer and soil around drainage holes with your finger. The meter stick going ll the way down the potting soil may disturb the roots too much. Just my opinion.
