Re: ensete maurelli ripped halfway out of the ground, unstable. fixable?

If it was mine I would dig it up, trim the top down & trim what roots was left & replant to start the plant all over again.. you will have a healthy & good looking plant when done.

Re: Banana plants problem

Cut back on the water. Mabe put some bottom heat on it. If it gets worse repot with dryer potting mix. I have better luck with pots that the plant barely fits in.

Re: What are the rules on collecting bananas in Florida?))

I don't think taking plants north shouldn't be a problem. Taking plants south is a bad thing. But that's my thoughts.
