Default Re: Overfertilized?

Is it possible to overfertilize an inground banana mat - I've never worried about that -I just pile on horse poop and nana fuel in the summer - what would the over fert signs look like?

As you can see in the picture, one leaf is not even unrolled yet, but the next is already coming out.
I have amended the soil with lots of compost and aged chicken manure. Is it overfertilized with organics? Is this called choking?
