The Q&A Archives: My Dwarf Banana Tree has black spot on the stock.

Question: The black spots are on the stock, I though it was just on the old leaves but now I have found it closer to the center of the tree. It puts on new leave at an on going rate and the leaves are getting bigger as it grows. I just not known if this is normal for a banana tree and if not how to get rid of it.

Answer: Uniform black spots (all the same size) can be normal, as can black streaks. If the black spots differ in size or appearance, you may be dealing with a disease of some sort. Wish I had more to offer, but without seeing the the banana tree, it's hard to diagnose a problem.
