Re: Is this a Red Banana plant? Also seeking tips to overwinter indoors.
Jim - I tried that once and for the most part it worked. I cut it down to just the closed spear. It was misted and in plastic trash bags tied gently around the roots. I misted it once per mo. In Feb/Mar it got a lot of mealy bugs and a little rot. It was 63-67 F ave temp. I want to keep this one growing in a pot.
Jeff - great idea. I'll do the digging cuts today...north & south sides. I'll try another degree of backing off the water too.
