Cut the wilted leaves off, fed, watered and fleeced. Hopefully they'll survive! Bloody exotic plants are hard work!

I keep mine in a cold greenhouse wrap in fleece and only watered it once a month just to keep it ticking through the winter. They are hard work but when you see them in their full glory during the summer months it makes it worth all the effort

That's good to know! I'm just not sure if they're too hot or too cold, it's pretty cool in my dining room at night...maybe they're too warm hence the leaves wilting.

Any Banana plant experts here? These are not looking great after a few days in my house. #banana #musa

My Groupon order arrived today! 6 Dwarf Musa Banana plants for 25 quid...I've also planted some Musa Balbisiana seeds that I bought online, so I'll be interested to see how they do in our heated greenhouse.
