leaning banana problem

I have one dwarf cavendish that has begun to lean, almost to the point of falling over. I attempted to straighten it, but i may have snapped the trunk. I can see the white onion looking inside, but the trunk isnot completely severed.

Any suggestions on how to "repair" or get the banana to heal? I am planning on adding more soil to cover the "break area", and hoping damage is minimal.

RE: leaning banana problem

There is good news, bad news. The bad news, is depending on the serverity of the break, I would just make a clean cut near the break line. The good news is that the banana will grow back fine, and straight.
