If you can't get them to load to your gallery they may be too large. They need to be 2MB or smaller.

Re: Musa basjoo not well - any ideas why?

Sounds like too much water, they slow down this time of year and use less water. Make sure the pot drains well and let it dry out between watering.

Re: Help! Severe change in plants behavior

Let it dry out between watering, it's dormant season and their growth slows. They don't need as much water this time of year. Over watering in the winter will kill a plant.

Re: New Plant help, something not right

I don't know your location but it's the dormant season and growth will slow and maybe even stop until spring. Don't over water it as it's using very little water when dormant.
