Default What i should do? (Dwarf Namwah)

This winter i have overwintered for the first time a banana in my garden. The plant and the pstem did survive and started their grow in spring (all of them). Even the biggest did put out a new petiole. You can see all them here with the new early grow of spring.



However, right now i'm having an issue.

The biggest of those pstem, which indubitably survived the winter as you have seen in the previous picture, firstly started putting out a white leaf, which withered immediately after being put out; then attempted to put out ANOTHER white leaf, was able to put it out about half of it (which in turn whitered) and the stopped its growth.
Right now i don't know what to do. It is rotting? It is chocking?
What i'm supposed to do? It as a 8' stem, i was hoping for it to be my first dwarf namwah flower, but right now it looks like it will just rot.
What i should do?

My climate is very much like yours and I have the same problem in the spring. I would just wait and see what happens. The sap is trying to come up and is at the point of the winter damage. If it dies, the energy will go into the mat and they will take up the slack and flourish. Hope this helps.

I guess i don't have much choice. If i cut the pstem down basically it like it was killed by winter, so keeping it up is, at the very least, the same that the worst possible otucome... so keeping it up it's the only reasonable option.
In case it was chocked, is there any manouvre i can do to help it "unchoke"?
