Default Black Sigota ?

Hi everybody,

The banana plants on the photos attached used to be in good condition.
I am not a banana expert so badly need helps

For the past weeks, the leaves slowly turns to yellow. Just wondering is it because of the humidity or they get infected by virus ? (black sigatoka??)

Thx before.

Show us a full picture of the pots and the soil. Describe the soil used in the pots.

Problems with potted Banana plants ALL start with the pot & soil.

Smile Re: Black Sigota ?

For me looks typical of an indoor plant which has been grown indoors.

Bananas pull back, turn brown and shrivel indoors.

Only when they are introduced to the outdoors will they thrive.

but .......

You pics are great....
