Banana Pup Growth problem

Posted by johnwcm none (My Page) on

I planted a 8 inch banana pup that i cut from the mother plant 3 weeks ago. It does not seem to be growing an the mother plant seems to be not doing so well. The mother plant is about a foot. I fertilize it with miracle grow plant food once a week, mixed in with water. I water it once every day. Why is it not growing, and can I help it?
I am in Zone 7.

Maybe the mother plant is too young and separating the two shocked both of them. I was always told to leave the first pup and remove the ones that come after. What type of banana are you growing?

RE: Banana Pup Growth problem

I tend to agree, u likely damaged both plants some, and they will most likely come out of it...
Are they potted or in ground?
What mg fert are u usin? Naners like a 3:1:2 ratio, or thereabouts...

Good luck, I doubt u hurt it bad, they r tough as nails!
