Default My banana plants stopped growing for some reason

Hi,

I planted them half year ago and grews very well and fast during that time. Also looks very healthy.
In the last 1-2 months they have started to slowing down their growing rate gradually.
Now they have stopped growing at all.
Some of the new fold leaves started to get curved a little bit. and that leaves didn't unfold 100% and I unfold them myself.
The leaves also have yellow and brown edges (look at pictures).

This is the worst leaf:




Another ones (this is normal?):








General images of the plants:




I tried 20-20-20 all purpose fertilizer. but it didn't help.
Does anybody know what the problem of my plants?

Thanks.

What zone are you in? State? Or country? What's the temperature?

It's still the end of the growing season what ever the temperature is. Don't over water, they will grow better when spring comes around.

No, it has nothing to do with the fall. The problem started before it, while it's was summer.
It's bothers me, if I will not fix the problem there will be no fruits.

i'm not super familiar with your locations weather but 20C is 68F and isn't to cold or anything but bananas are a Tropical Plant and will grow normal only when there is slightly higher temps AND humidity. So if you are a low humidity environment it will not grow quickly all year around. How often do you get rain and how often do you water?

I don't know about the humidity but my neighbors have a banana plant that growing now just fine.
There is not realy rain now.
Before the problem showed up I watered each plant 20-30 liters (5-8 gallons) twice a week.
but since they don't grow I cut the watering in half.
I see no point giving a lot of water for plants that do not grow.
