Default banana update

Here is the latest pic of my banana. Just wondering why old leaves die. If you look at the back leaf, it's also now showing brown spots and will soon become like the one in front. Is it normal?

Thanks!

Neil,

Yes, it's normal for your banana's leaves to eventually turn brown and die; just like all plants eventually lose their leaves. They only last so long. As long as they aren't all turning yellow at once, it's just the normal process.

Awesome! That makes me feel very comfortable.

Oh, I noticed that the leaves that are dying are the ones without the red lines in the middle.

Thanks!
