Re: Potted Dwarf Cavendish (I think) leaves getting smaller and samller

I just fertilized a couple days ago assuming that may be the issue. Not sure what's the best method / frequency / type of fertilizer to use. I'm not sure of the exact species as I just bought it from...

Re: Potted Dwarf Cavendish (I think) leaves getting smaller and samller

Lighting has only changed based on the seasons. I don't remember this happening last summer though. Here are some pictures. You can see the smaller leaves up top.

What will happen if I don't cut my bananas down for the winter?

I have two pretty large plants outside (in Atlanta) that I was given as gifts as babies. Don't know what species but they're not cold tolerant. Last year I cut them down after the first freeze and...

Re: First freeze - seeking advice

Well once again, conflicting advice :)

Just seems to be how it is with plants. I may run an experiment and leave one to just die off on its own and cut and mulch the other and see what happens.

First freeze - seeking advice

I have a couple plants - not sure what species as they were gifted to me - that I planted late this summer. They're about 4 feet tall, and last week we got our first freeze. The person who gave them...

Anybody know what these are?

A neighbor has a whole forest of them, and said she doesn't know what they are. She gave me a few pups so I'd love to know that they are. The tallest ones were...

The new plant (about 8") seems otherwise healthy and has put out two new leaves since I got it about a month ago. However, this is the first time the new leaf has...

Re: Can mealybugs do this kind of damage?

Without posting more pics, needless to say the one with the 'nibbler' that ate straight through the stem appears to be dying. All the leaves are turning brown and folding in and the stem is turning...

Re: Can mealybugs do this kind of damage?

My little pups I've had for about 6 weeks and it seems like they've barely grown.

Re: Can mealybugs do this kind of damage?

I had them in my backyard which is full of other plants. I hope you're right about the recovery. I see so many big beautiful bananas driving around Atlanta and it makes me wonder why mine are having...

Can mealybugs do this kind of damage?

I've been waging a constant battle against mealybugs (and maybe some other invisible foe), and feels like I'm losing. I've lost multiple leaves from multiple new plants, and today I noticed...

Re: Soil drainage question

The drainage holes are pretty large, like half an inch, and there are quite a few. It's interesting that the soil absorbs the water quickly but it doesn't seem to move all the way through quickly....

Re: Beginner here seeking some help with my new plants

Thank you both.

So I'm curious about the misting - is that something I should do instead of watering or in addition to it? Also, how do I know when it's safe to leave these plants in the sun?

I recently received these two Musa Basjoo and potted them about a week ago in Miracle Grow as instructed by the seller. One other banana plant (not shown) got root rot so I've been pretty...
