I want to know what is wrong with my banana plant. It is the banana plant that has the red toned leaves. It produces new leaves often and every time a new leaf is formed, I wait anxiously - hoping that this time it will mature into a healthy leaf. But, alas, no. It is not to be. Every time the leaf opens, it soon shows dry brown/black type areas and soon they become bigger and the leaf just dries up. Or if it doesn't, I soon cut it off because it is not attractive.
My daughter-in-law has the banana plant that is just solid green and she does not have any problems. Hers is beautiful. I ask her what she does. She says she does nothing special with it. Is the "red variety" one harder to grow? If I only knew what to do to help mine become a pretty plant, I definitely would do it. Otherwise, I will have to take it out of the pot and discard it. If you can help me out, I will be very grateful! Thanks!
