Right now they are very wilty (will take some pictures later) and I don't know if that the natural cycle or if something is wrong. I also don't know if I should cut them all down/back or just clean up wilty and dead leaves.

I'm a new banana mom who didn't have 9 months to plan for this! lol

Will try to link to the image:

Hi! Glad to see another new woman on here! Besides me that is! Anyway, I am not trying to be mean but I’ve wanted to say this from the first time I read your post. Your joke about not having 9 months in advance to learn to take care of your banana babies, sorry to say is dumb. I’m sure you were only joking but still. I wish you good luck on growing all of your plants!
Itís long been a dream of mine to be able to grow real bananas off my own plants! So, please wish me luck on my quest to fulfill that dream!
