Either way I'll keep you posted.

Seems like all my indoor plants get aphids/mites. It's annoying. I got really hardcore least year because my seedlings got put under attacked and incinerated plants.... However I managed to win last year but not without a few sacrifices.
Even if all leaves are gone, it will put out new ones in the spring. Just reduce watering to reflect the loss of leaf surface area. Keep the corm on the dry side if all the leaves yellow. If you got to the spider mites soon enough, some of the leaves might pull through as they did not look too far gone.

As I have heard many times on this forum, never give up on a banana until it's just a hole in the ground. I had an African Red die to the ground. No life, no leaves, not even a pstem. I set the container aside for a month or two. When I went to grab the pot to plant something else in it, BAM! The plant had come back two-fold!
