Banana Plant Question
 
Hello all. I'm new to this forum and new to planted tanks. I have a couple of banana plants an they have chutes that have gone to the water surface. One is getting so long it's not a straight shot from the plant to the surface. It's bowed and getting longer. What is the purpose of this part of the plant? Should I cut it back?

Its sending a pad/flower to the surface. Don't cut it, its just doing what it's supposed to do. Check out this link for more info on the Banana Plant.
