Banana trees

Zone 32935 | WeMe125 added on October 16, 2016 | Answered

I have a banana tree that is trying to grow out two to three leaves at the same time. One starts to come out and then another comes out and then another and then none of them grow. They just sit there. They're are about six inches tall. What will cause this and how can I fix it? Thanks Willmon Edwards

Over the coarse of your Banana Trees growing cycle it can produce as many as 40 leaves. Leaves that are not opening indicate it's lacking something in the growing environment.

Soil nutrients, sunshine, moisture and temperature are all possible issues or multiple problems.
