Post by parkeey » Wed Aug 28, 2013 7:40 pm

whats up with my basjoo??? I have a basjoo that I thought had died or I dug up just infont that poked up in may time and its doing so well, amost as big as this one and loads fresh lush big leaves! The one behind (in pic) I paid a lot of money for is really not doing well, I chopped it back and again it just don't put out fresh leaves, anyone advise me what to do with it.
I bought it, it came from in a conservatory and im wondering if its sulking from being outdoors?! :? the leaves are not lush or at all nice to look at.

Look at the roots for Larve,

Have you fed it?

Water it, its been very hot for weeks.

Maybe you did all the above in that case wait for Dave Brown, or someone to help.

really surprised at those pic's as musa basjoo grow really strong here with very little winter protection needed unless silly temp's, when any bannanas are kept indoor's there weak stretched growth will take a hit when outside. could just be a crappe plant. karl.
