Dwarf red dacca banana

    4 responses

Tina starts with ...
My main trunk has a failed flower stalk. Should I cut that trunk out, or will it try to flower again?
When I cut a trunk out, how far down do I need to go?
Thanks for any advice

Ooh. This is an interesting case. I have personally never seen this before.
As for my answer:
Does the banana tree have any suckers?
If it does, and they are looking really good, then you should be okay to cut the main trunk down. About a foot from the ground is okay. If you don't think the suckers are ready to take over, then you can wait a month or two.
Cheers,
PlumRob

I know, very disappointed. Yes, 3 large suckers, I've been getting rid of the others to try to get it to flower since it's 2.5 years old now.
Thanks for the advice.

Okay.
If I were you, I would cut the main stem down, careful not to damage the suckers.
These suckers will give you fruit likely within a year, if not, then within two years.
And in case you are wondering, you should keep the three suckers as they are, there is no need to remove any.
Happy Gardening,
Enjoy the bananas when they come,
PlumRob
