I bought a 2ft tall banana plant with some pretty large leaves from a nursery. It is in good health but unfortunate a few large stems broke during transport. It is still connected but no longer able to support the weight of the large leaf.
I tried to splinter the stem with a pencil and tape to hold it up. Is this a worthless effort? Should I cut the stems off?
How fast can I expect the stems to grow back? This is planted in a 16 gallon pot on a south facing balcony. What are some tips to make the recovery fast?
