You're in FL, just wait till its a foot tall then decide. They do better when attached to the mother while young.

Re: leaves not opening

Could you describe how you wrapped the plant.... in soil, out of soil, in what material, and how was it "caught". Sounds like it may be choking, but need a picture before you start cutting.

Re: Rot?

The same thing happens to me so I'd love feedback from an expert but as it stand I watch it and if it keeps spreading I remove the rot.

Re: I've got nanners!

From what I gather it's the seeds that are inedible, they are so hard you chip a tooth. If you look up online there are a tons of seeds. If you can manage to separate the seeds I would be curious to...

Re: Ice cream ->flag leaf->fruit...then dead?

Flowering at 6 feet for a blue java...is that even possible? To be "underdeveloped" to that extent and get fruit to me would suggest maybe dwarf namwah? But I'm a relative noob as well just...

Re: Dwarf Orinoco Pre Flag

Awesome!!!! Can basjoo be stored the same way? And what exactly did you do? Was it just garbage bags around roots, no water or light all winter?

Re: When will my dwarf cavendish banana grow bigger leaves?

If the plant is healthy and properly fed, each leaf should be bigger than the last.

Re: Question about shoots on bananas for a noobie

Leave it as is. In my experience if something goes wrong, the mother plant will die and the pups will replace her.

Re: Repotting

I personally wouldnt. Reason being it's easy to over water a plant in winter when it is in a large pot. The smaller the pot the better the drainage and the quicker it dries. I had a very bad...

Re: Grow light recommendations?

When you say keep soil damp...could you elaborate. That's my biggest problem with keeping plants dormant, I tend to over water, but in my mind I was keeping the soil damp.

Re: Grow light recommendations?

Re: Grow light recommendations?

Oh and just to add, I've tried led's instead of cfl's and had terrible results. Cfl's have easy color spectrum led's are way more complicated.

If you use cfl's 6500k is for vegetative growth and ...

Re: Grow light recommendations?

I built my grow light. 8 x 23 watt cfl's (100 watt equivalent) gives me 800 watts of light. Watts isn't the best way to measure but it gives you a ballpark idea.

With that light through winter I was...

Re: Is this tree revivable?

No need to revive it, it isnt dead! Looks like a bop to me too. That's some long petioles for a banana, but I haven't seen them all!
