Default Growing roots but no leaf growth


One of my nanas hasn't been putting on any leaf growth and I thought it could be going dormant, however, I noticed yesterday that a new large white root has appeared out of a drainage hole. so the origins of the plant are still growing.

Why are the roots still active and growing but not the leaves? should I add grow lights or something?

thank you!
