Default Re: Leaf/stem issues on indoor large bananas

Overwintering in the house is tough at times. I had the same thing happen to me last year. I started yanking those outter leaves down and you should have seen the water pour out. The inner leaves that were choking were pale green and weak but once they were freed they turned a healthy green quickly. I used a rotating fan to help strengthen them. I cut back on my humidity to around 45% and held my breath that they'd make it until summer when they go back in the ground. Once back in the ground everything straightened out. Good luck!!
