Answer: Plants of the cultivated banana (Musa) are subject to a number of bacterial and fungal diseases. The paper-thin tissue indicates a disease, or a reaction to cold weather. Why not take a sample of the problem to your local Cooperative Extension office for positive identification? Contact WSU Extension at (206) 296-3900 and the friendly folks will help diagnose the problem and give you some control strategies. Best wishes with your plant!
