Default Leaf problems...any answers?

Any ideas on these leaf problems? It is a Dwarf Namwah or Raja Puri. In a pot fed with Miracle Grow.

The plant looks robust/vigorous except for that leaf problem. The new leaf looks thin in spots. Its not mine, so I lack some details. I don't grow them in pots, but am trying help someone out who is fond of her plant.

Thanks in advance

It's odd that the lower leaves appear to be in much better shape. It appears to be tattered by the wind, but the yellow/brown blotches appear to be something else. Will have to defer that to the experts.

Looks to me like lack of water and/or over fertilization. I'm in 10a and fertilize once a month with an organic 6-6-6 (8oz cup for that size) and water right now everyday with the heat we have. The rain we get here everyday does that trick!

It looks the same as some of my bananas. I'll post pics soon.

I hope someone can tell us what is the problem.
