banana tree getting brown spots

dimarcoMarch 28, 2010

Please help if possible. My new Basjoo Banana treee has started growing(2 new leeves). In the last week or two the leaves started getting small brown spots near the edges of the leave on the bottom of the leaves. Then the leaves brown and turn crisp starting at edges. Even the newest leaf. I planted 4 weeks ago. Gets direct sun 6-8 hrs. Water less then once a week because soil stays moist.

spider mites...look very closely. They are nasty little devilish creatures who make nice plants look bad. Take them outside and spray them good..keep them wet/humid.
