Default Zebrina(s) Growing Very Slowly

Hello Everyone!

I live in South Florida. A couple of years ago I purchased a Zebrina banana. They are beautiful plants. When I first purchased the plant it grew like a weed. Within a year I already sprouted and transplanted a pup. Due to the rapid progress, when I transplanted the pup, I decided to put the larger mother banana in a slightly bigger container - to allow room for more growth potential. I then placed the pup in the old original container. I now have a total of two Zebrinas. It seems like within the last year both of the plants barely have grown. The pup seems to be almost the same height it was 9 months ago. They barely make any progress anymore. The difference between when I purchased them and now is night and day. I'm not sure if this helps.. but it might be worth mentioning that the variegation fades very quickly on the leaves. I just want my plants to big big beautiful and lush. Right now they just seem stunted. My bananas should be performing like they're on rocket fuel! C'mon! I live in South Florida! Does any body have any thoughts? Any thoughts or advice would be incredibly appreciated. Thank you everyone!
