Bananas Brindando Musa Basjoo problem

Hi everyone been awhile, received a basjoo for fathers day, about 18" tall. Planted it in a pot and it was doing very well for a few months, now the leaves have small brown spots all over them and the lower leaves are dying and shredding. I live in SE Michigan, it has been cool in the evenings for the last 2 weeks and this is around the same time this started. Any ideas?

Hi Davek

I have plants up the street in Leland Mi, Basjoos..... great plants for the sandy soil.
The same leaf issue does happen in Ohio at the end of my grow season.
In fact most of my plants will experience some sort of leaf drop starting now till January.
Some yellow and drop faster than others especially some of the more tropical plants

This is normal for your plants as the the days grow shorter and the nights cooler.
The plant will lose the leaves it does not need anymore.

I trim yellow leaves as they become unsightly.

Leaves will stop turning yellow at some point.
