Senorita Banana Leaf Growth Problem

    2 responses

Luke :) starts with ...
I purchased a Senorita banana plant in spring last year, and was rapidly putting out growth untill it went dormant over winter.
Now that it has emerged from dormancy and is putting out new leaves, the growth is light in colour with thin leaf margins and slow growth.

Can anyone identify whether this is a nutrient defiency or a disease or virus?

Thanks in advance :)

I'd highly recommend you take some samples to your local plant pathologist. Check your state govs primary industries website for locations. Take in a whole (the worst looking one possible but not completely dead) leaf with as much of the stem as you can. Double bag it and get it to them as quick as possible after removing it from the tree.
It should be free too.

This turned out to be a severe case of winter yellows/shock, the banana recovered through mid spring onwards.
