Posted by patsgarden 6 (My Page) on

I brought in a potted musa 'dwarf cavendish' into a cool bedroon to overwinter. It and three pups were doing ok, some brown leaves, but now it's looking terrible. I cut back on watering and the room has bright sun but is very cool. It has had some new leaves but there are now lots of brown leaves and alot of droopy leaves. Any advice? Thanks

Cutting back on the water is a good thing. You want to water when the top inch of soil is very dry, provided that it's not a rather deep pot. Cut off anything that does not have green on it, including, cutting down the stems if you have to until you see no brown on the plant. Give it some time. Once garbage season is over(winter), then you can put the banana outside where it will love the sunlight and warmth.

Do you have a warmer sunny room you can move it to? maybe you could get it growing again.
