Doesn't look dead to me but an unheated greenhouse isn't ideal, needs to be kept above 5° If there's no leaf emerging, cut it down a couple of inches and see what the inner circle looks like. If it's mushy, it's likely dead but keep cutting down until you see solid growth if there's any. If it's any consolation, I've lost my biggest one in a heated greenhouse
Same as @vec 👍 think you just can tell in the overall look of the plant as if in if it looks plump with water overall & yes check the top for new growth by slightly peeling back. As stated im no banana expect but mine done well this winter indoors 👍.. mines be out for a good couple of weeks now, I cut back all the winter leaves & have been watering everyday and feeding one a week. But unfortunately the strong heavy winds I had here in Hertfordshire in the last couple of days absolutely...
Absolutely destroyed the new foliage coming through! So I won't dare upload a photo at this moment 🙄.. would be a shame because I put a lot of care and effort over winter to lose it 😥 fingers crossed for both of us @jacaranda I did re pot mine 👍
Advice please @richard.spicer.7906 @vec This is my plant, bought last year. It’s been in the greenhouse all winter and it’s now putting on new growth. Should I cut the left hand leaf off? How often should I feed it and with what? Thank you 😘😘 #ensete #containergarden #exotic
No don't cut it off til you get at least one more leaf open. Those new leaves will probably burn when it's first outside as it adjusts to the light levels. It needs as much leaf as possible to photosynthesise. It's greedy, they like lots of water, horse manure, tomato food, chicken pellets, grow more etc etc think you get the picture 😂 Bananas are greedy and thirsty
@richard.spicer.7906 mine have done well in pots in the greenhouse and are still slowly growing. I've managed to lose my Cavendish banana though as it was sitting at the back of the greenhouse in a tray that had water in it.... Good job they are cheap to replace 😏
I’ve gone tropical! I’ve never been interested in #exotics but I was given a canna earlier this year and now I’m hooked! #ensete #abyssinianbanana #redandgreen #containergarden #mygardentoday 25/08/2018
