Default Odd Leaf

Hey guys.

I've had a bit of wind the last few days which has ratted the leafs like no tomorrow. But ive been keeping an eye on this leaf for the last week and a half, It seems to be growing a bit funny.

Anyone see anything like this before?

yes... i am not sure if it is due to nitrogen or potassium, but i usually get those after i add a good amount of fertilizer.

Thanks for the answer.

I am positive it would be the nitrogen. When i put the banana into its new large pot, i mixed up a bunch of nitrogen booster into the soil in the wheel barrow and that lot put it in the bottom of the container.

It could also be calcium and/or boron deficiency, which can sometimes be triggered by excess nitrogen as the plants have big growth spurt and the uptake or availability of boron and calcium cannot keep up. These mineral deficiencies are also common without excess nitrogen.
