Default BBTV in a sad looking plant?

Got this plant at a shop very cheap as it was looking quite sad. Very dry soil and multiple pups in the small pot with it. New growth is crowding at the top of the plant. Starting to get concerned with potential BBTV (see photos below), though I have read that dwarf cavendish can have crowding issues with drought.

The plant says it was grown in Canada and doesnít appear to have pests, but some of my other plants have come in with aphids in the past so hoping to avoid spreading anything. Currently this one is quarantined.

Hoping to get otherís thoughts.

Thanks!

Looks normal for an overcrowded stressed plant ready to be repotted with your favorite mix. Feel free to separate pups if you wish.
Treat your plant as you would your other tropicals and you should be good.

Highly unlikely the plant has disease.


Once in your care the plant should sort itself out in 30 days or more.

Thanks for the feedback! Iíve repotted & separated the pups into their own pots, hopefully I can nurse these back to good health.
