Default GF falling over weak pstem

So late last month I posted about my GF having and issue with its leave falling away from the pstem. Well now all those leaves have broken that last one broke in front of me today when I went to check on it. I noticed the whle pstem is leaning to one side like it is getting ready to fall over. The pstem also feels softer than usual but no rot just softer.

I know it looks like the wind is blowing it but it is not. The wind was blowing hard last week but it was still upright. It has also been outside for about 2 months so I just don't get it. Any help would be appreciated, this is my first banana and I would hate to cut it down.

The only thing I can suggest is make sure it is not staying too wet.

I did water it yesterday, but it felt like it needed water and I have a little tester that said it needed it. I use both just to be sure.

Yesterday it was 79 today it will be about 87 do you think it could be the heat? I know it isn't that hot but maybe the rapid change in temp? I don't think that would be it because they have been fine with it before.

All I know is I had a Siam Ruby do that. I let it dry out that solved the problem.
