Re: Banana Grubby Damage

Oh yea- the black racers were everywhere last year after all the frogs emerged from the rains. I've been seeing lots of frogs so I'm sure the snakes aren't far behind them.

This one was hit pretty hard this winter but has come back very strong and it seems to be throwing an odd looking leaf- could this be the pre flag leaf? It is a 10 month old Dwarf Orinoco. This isn't...
