Banana Nadir

nadir 002Nadir is when you hit rock bottom and resolve to attend a meeting of Plant-Abusers Anonymous every single day until spring, right?

If so, this right here is rock bottom.

Following my sleepy post the other day about the sad state of my truly beloved banana tree, a reader named Rob posted that “banana plants are quite resilient, so long as the stem is still showing green/yellow and the core is alive, it will resprout. Just trim back the dead leaves and keep it moist (not wet) and in a bright place...”

So I did.

Ugh.  Rock bottom.

I know the leaves in the picture the other night were dead.  But now it looks even MORE dead.

I sure hope that Rob guy knows what he’s talking about!
