Re: New leaves on gran nain twisted.

Re: New leaves on gran nain twisted.

I cant say its the same thing, but my Sikkimensis started out with smaller twisted leaves, thickened veins and overall reduced leaf area, then the leaves started becoming necrotic and severe. In your...

Re: New leaves on gran nain twisted.

Did you change how you watered or fertilized? Never seen that before. I will be watching this thread to see what the experts say. Good luck!

Re: Getting zebrina to flower?

If I wanted to force an ornamental banana to flower, I'd feed it a bloom formula in the spring. Most fertilizers with a very high middle number will work. For example, I sell Grow More 5-50-17.

Re: Short Double Mahoi

i agree it looks very happy so obviously you are taking good care of it. So far in my opinion, double mahoi seems like one that doesn't get so big but will get very fat stems. Just what you're...

Re: Short Double Mahoi

Thats a nice looking plant. Weird that it seems far too short yet to flower yet its super fat and kinda seems to be stacking leaves. They usually flower around 5' the first time so you probably have...

Re: SDC stopped putting out new leafs.

You say the area is not soft but it looks a bit sunken in in the photo? Does it smell rotted at all? I don't want you to cut into the pseudostem if you don't have to but if it were me I might try and...

Smile Re: New growth smaller after winter

Re: When to move my bananas back outside

If you said upper 40's I'd say its all good since they are getting warmer temps during the day. All your ABB's should be good regardless.. I'd just keep them where the cold and wind both can't get...

Re: Thinking ahead for winter.

It's just a crap shoot. It might be in there. Mine always seems to bloom in fall too. I wonder how it would work if you cut it back now, instead of waiting. The bloom might be further down low. Also...

Re: Too many pups?

what zone are you in? 8 pups is a bit much. mine has the mother and 2-3 others. when you remove them fill it in with some soil. I water then and growth picks back up within a day or so
