Question Dwarf Cavendish Leaf Clump Problem


Some of you who have grown Dwarf Cavendish (Musa acuminata) before have probably bumped up against this problem.

The leaves at some point in time (probably 5 months ago, it's about 3 years old) started growing at a rate faster than the banana can grow up. That means its beginning to clump a bunch of leaves together.

Is this common? How come it's not growing much vertically? the leaves and plant itself looks very healthy, however, I read this might be a common problem for this type of banana.

Any advice?
