Hardy Banana leaves have been damaged

4girlzmom added on June 15, 2015 | Answered

I have a Hardy Banana (Musa resistente) that I have been growing indoors since last summer. I recently took it outside to correct its positioning in the pot (it was planted crooked) and on my way in, it hit the ceiling fan, leaving all leaves hanging except one. Should I cut it back, remove the broken leaves or what would you suggest? Thanks in advance.

You will need to wait and see if your plant can survive it's accident.

Leave a leaf alone if it's intact, but trim away any ragged edges.
New leaves will grow from the center.
