Re: Banana stump sprout.

If it's growing out of the middle , dig up the whole corm and replant. If there are starts coming off of the sides of the corm you can cut them off if they are large enough and plant them else where.

Re: gold finger has odd new growth after winter

Looks like it was choked and broke out the side. It will sort itself out, you can cut the old stem off.

Re: April nanner arrival #2 Zebrina Rojo (Wellspring Gardens)

Again if anyone has any tips for container grown Zebrina in cooler climates I am happy to get them.

A location helps with this type of question. Marking the map helps.

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.
