Ensete 'Mauelii'


I got my enstee in May when it was around 30cm tall, it is now September and the plant including its pot is over six foot in height with massive paddle shaped leaves that were getting bigger with eachimagenew leaf, I feed it a high nitrogen feed every week and I keep moving it into larger and larger containers. As you can imagine the rate of growth has been phenomenal, however all of a sudden its next two emerging leaves are opening out smaller and have spits in them before they have even unfurled....I think I read somewhere that overfeeding can cause banana to strangulate, is that what is happening ? Or have I somehow under feed ? I have given a couple of doses of tomato feed here and there too. image
