Default Diseased or ?

3 of my 5 plants are exhibiting dark leaves/stems and some wilting. The variety that are showing this: Pisang Ceylon, Kokopo, Lacatan. My other two, Manzana and Blue Java seem fine. I live in Tampa, FL and we are in a seasonal change (cooler temps, less rain). Not sure if this is a disease or some other issue?

I am near you as well and my bananas don't look that great right now, but my leaves turn yellow first before drying up. The black seems odd to me.
