Looks like some deficiency. Not serious.

I've given it banana fuel twice now. Last week and this week. I'm only watering about once a week about half gallon each time.

It's in a 13 gallon container. I think i'm too afraid to overwater.
I have it in a drainage pot.
Maybe it just takes time for the banana fuel to kick in?

Lol. I also have an Ensete Maurelli that did this with a new leaf recently. Has it been windy there? I'm fairly certain that's the cause of it on mine. Only did it on one leaf....that had been growing in when we got a wild storm.

How much banana fuel per gallon are you feeding? My namwah leaves often come in torn, because im pushing them hard with fertilizer. You could always withhold the fertilizer for a few weeks and see what the next leaf comes in like, or just reduce your dosage.

I'm putting 1/8 teaspoon in a half gallon of water. THe package says 1/4 tsp to a gallon of water, but i don't think it needs that much water.
Now i could be wrong. Maybe I'm so nuts about trying not to overwater it that i'm hurting it the opposite way, i don't know.

i've only fertilized twice so far.
