Thank you Bry. That sticky outie was where a leaf had been cut off. Your pstem looks healthy. It may be getting too much heat from the combination of the sun, the floor, and wall. You might try setting it on dirt and in partial shade for a while and see how the new leaves look. And give it lots of water especially if it is hot and dry where you are.

For future reference, I'd leave the leaves on (wow...that sounded funny, huh?) even if they are falling limp downward. They are still making food for the plant as long as they're still green so I leave all mine on till they turn brown/dry up. It might not look pretty, but it's probably slightly better for the plant. Looks like it'll come out of it just fine though with proper watering....pseudostem looks healthy still.

I just have to ask, what kind of banana plant is that?

The p-stem looks good, in a few weeks it should look better. Did you just get the plant?

i'm not even sure what kind it is... and yes i did just get the plant... like 2 1/2 weeks or maybe 3 weeks ago... and the plant looked great... but then the leafs started to dry up... maybe because of too much sun or idk... maybe very little water?

Watering is never based on a regular schedule (for optimal purposes). Basically, wait till the soil is dry not only on the surface, but below the surface, then give it a decent soaking. Well-draining soil is recommended for bananas. That way, even if you give them a lot of water, it's never too much (as the excess will drain away). But once again, just wait till it's dry....then water. It's never a 'I water every _____ days' type of thing....check daily and water as necessary. Certain plants outside I DO water most days, but again...not a 'scheduled' thing....as necessary.

Well, don't let it sit bone dry for a long duration. Basically use your judgment. If it's in a pot, you can tell by the weight how dry it is. If it's in the ground, you can either dig a little, or you can use Patty's method (dowel pushed in the soil to test moisture at deeper depths...works for pots great as well! (thanks Patty!!!)). It doesn't have to be TOTALLY dry...but decently dry. Just let it dry out (subjectively) before watering it again. There's no real scientific measurement (empirical/objective) for the level of dryness....but let it get pretty dry before watering again...that's the main idea.
