It’s April 29th and my Red Abyssinian Banana has been planted back out for 4 weeks and has made very little growth since, to be expected given our cooler than normal temps, with most days with highs below the mid-50’s. Most warm temperate and sub-tropical plants basically are shutting down below 50ºF. All of the irregular cut tissues were done at one time at the same height. Each emerging leaf is doing so at a different rate, the more fully extended they were at the time of cutting the slower. Each ultimately fans out what’s left of its leaf blade at the same height contributing to the plant’s ‘trunk’ appearance and the uninformed to refer to these as banana ‘trees’.
