Default Re: Leaf Damaged Plant

yea im going to try some of those things thanks guys.
latest update tho.. my clumsy hands actually broke off the only leaf while trying to move one of the pots nearby. unfortunately i think this plant is done for and its time to buy another one.

i just removed the mulch that i had on top of the soil and noticed a lot of small bugs. i don't know if they are spider mites or not because they are not red. i am not thinking this is the cause of my plants problems.

i know a banana plant is able to loose all its leaves and fully bounce back over winter but this plant is almost brand new and probably doesn't even have its root system established yet.
any suggestions of how to fix the problem? im about to just dump the soil and plant and clean the pot really well. i think its time to try again.
