Gini, can you post some pictures? Do you know the name of the variety of banana you have? That would be most helpful.

Gini, your picture link was of all your photos in your album so I changed it to just show the banana. I have to admit that I've never grown bananas. I've seen them grown in the Amazon in Peru, and from what I see in your picture, it appears that yours could be planted too deep. You also have a large well that will collect alot of water. The yellowed and tattered leaf looks like it is aging, but not really a problem. They hang down when their life is over. I'm concerned that you would only have 2 leaves when that one is gone and it's a year old.

I wish you knew the name of the variety of banana you have. I don't usually refer people to other boards, but in this case I would suggest you ask here for more help. Try the main banana discussion board.

Please let me know what they tell you.
