Isn't that a natural feature? Have you picked your crop yet? After harvest every bananatree dies, but its babies are then already shooting up. I have no idea how that goes for potted bananaplants. I am wondering what Noseypotter's advice is going to do. Please take a picture of your plant, then of it wrapped up. I am so curious!

it will allow the plant sun but no frost in its growing tip and being basicly a tropical plant keep the frost of the roots funnily enough without covering it.works for me

I put chicken wire around mine, and stuff it with straw, i always move to a place with cover so it don't get to wet through the winter, but mine are still nice and green at the moment, i have usually have done it by now. maybe next weekend.
