Default Banana with leaf problem


The last few (around 5) cigar leaves on my banana plant have been coming out curved and will not open up properly without me helping them, and now the pup on my plant is having the same problem. And even after opening up the tip is still weird and twisted. I don't know what variety it is. I have two other bananas close to it that do not have the problem and also some pups from this plant I separated earlier this year do not have the problem. Anyone have any ideas what is causing this and how to fix it? I am fertilizing them with well composted manure and an organic general purpose fertilizer. It has been raining enough that I don't need to water them. The plant is about 4 feet tall
