Removed three more original leafs and had to correct leaf count
~ Pulled leafs 4 through 6 as they were severely yellowed and dying.
~ I did a complete leaf inventory and found after I had pulled 6 leafs I still had One original leaf left. According to records actually had Seven leafs when I got the plant not six as I has thought. All posts from this point on will have the corrected leaf count. I am not planning to go back and correct all the previous blog entries at this point. I did correct my Banana Tree Growth spreadsheet chart though.
~ The corrected leaf count is: I originally had Seven leafs when I got the plant. I have lost Six leafs. I now only have One of the original leafs on my plant. Caven's first leaf roll that was eaten a bit by a caterpillar is the first leaf and Eighth leaf that grew on my watch. Including the Eighth leaf , Caven now has Ten of his Sixteen lifetime leaf count currently growing.
