Question Could this be E. D.?

Good Sunday Afternoon:

A few days ago a leaf from my Guess Banana( Ice Cream) so the tag said when I bought it; put out a leaf that struck me as funny how it cmae about.

It sprouted but never straight out sort of limp from the get go......

So yesterday I attempted to unwrap it by hand with some success?????

Please tell me what you think could it be E.D. element deficency or G. D. grower defincey ? lol

Or is that normal. See pic's below the first two are from LIMPY and the others from other Who Knows what plants lol

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Limpy has the classic symptoms of calcium and/or boron deficiency. No way of knowing which one, or whether it is both, without professional soil test.

Straight Up 1 looks like Dwarf Cavendish.
Up and At Em looks like Super Dwarf Cavendish.

My first guess would be not enough moisture in the plant to make it stand up, but if that is not the case it may be a nutrient thing.

You were correct Sir......

After a good rain yesterday I discovered it had straightened up and unfolded nicely.
