Default Re: slow growth

Are the entire mats growing slowly? I have the same problem with some of my bananas, where the previous year's stalk gets killed back and comes back slowly. These stalks usually grow a handful of small leaves and never really look impressive. However, I normally get a few pups around the old stalks that grow well. Perhaps the soil has just been exhausted around the bananas?
