Banana being lazzzzy...........

chippy(7)May 31, 2008

Hi All,

I replanted my moms banana plant about a month ago. I don't recall the name of it. Anyway, it was stored in the basement for the winter.

It was cut at about 4ft when stored (no dirt or water or light).

Anyway, we replanted it this year about a month ago. Its started to push up a leaf from the middle, but almost looks like different layers. Almost like its stuck.

Its in direct sunlight and temps have been in the 70s-80s lately.

My own bananas have punched out about 2 branches already, so im wondering if there is anything to help this?

Ill try to take a pic when I can.

Just try to be patient. Not sure where you are, but around here things were delayed about 2 weeks due to a relatively chilly Spring (my peonies are just coming into some bloom and normally they are at peak around Mother's Day. Well, bananas are really tropical and it's going to take some prolonged warmth to encourage them. (My bananas are in about the same state as yours--all but the Chinese and Japanese which are pushing active growth.) Good luck!
