    At just 3 years old is this plant dying
    Hi thank you for allowing me to join your group & the main reason altho i am an avid retired gardener is i have a Banana plant that is no longer producing leaves but there seems to be a huge bulbus lump growing in the middle & which looks like tiny flowers around the outside is it dying or will it die. It was repot in the summer when all the babies were removed is it pining for its babies back ? Not sure what to do here. Thanks for any replies x

    Hi Andy and welcome. I have a banana plant (M Cavendish) but do not understand your question. Did you pot up the pips? Could you attach a photograph please.
