I use photobucket. Upload your pics there and copy the IMG code. Then paste the code in the text of your post where you want the picture to show up.

Hope that helps!

How many leaves have come out between the leaf that is pulling away and the new leaf? If the leaf pulling away was leaf # and that came out after it was leaf #2, what would the newest leaf's number be?

My dwarf Orinoco (which is still potted) had its last leaf pull away while the 9th leaf was coming out. The reason it occurs is physics. The curve of the oldest leaf sheath has much smaller curve and can no longer grip the larger pseudostem so it pops off, they weight of the leaf pulls it away.

Does that describe what is happening to your banana?

On a 17' tall Namwa the older leafs falling can crush a nearby smaller banana.

If you mean that the stalk is dry and peeling, that's normal. I just trim it back with a large pair of scissors.

As for posting pics on here, upload to your gallery. Click on the pic to open, and it will give you the code to C&P into your post.

PhotoBucket has sold out. I'll get my pic back up soon on some other site.

This is typical for an Orinoco. If you're plant is actively growing it is normal for the outer sheaths to be posted out. Just cut them off. Pot may be too small.

But the OP isn't growing Orinoco. I know its normal, I was asking him if my description fit what was happening to his plant seeing as he can't show us with photos.
