Borneo mac suddenly stopped growing stood still for a month

Post by nicebutdim » Tue Sep 06, 2011 6:26 pm

My Borneo Mac that I've had about 7 years now from Lari Ann has suddenly come to a halt after producing a huge leaf and half way onto the second one it has stood still for about 6 weeks now.Never had that happen before,the roots look good as I took it out of the pot to have a look,in the pic it's the middle leaf.It's kept in a conservatory fed well but nothing will make it move,does anyone have any suggestions? tried feeding frequently and also leaving it dry for a while but nothing seems to shake it out of it's compacency.

This would be my guess too.

I agree, :wink:

NBD, Is it actually a Borneo Mac, or a Mac Borneo Giant. With LariAnn she could have crossed them so difficult to know for sure.
Best regards
