Unhappy Help! Severe change in plants behavior

Hello everyone, this was my first plant baby that grew beautifully and I love it with all my heart. I got it small with 4 leaves, unhappy, and it grew a lot to my surprise.

Now, when the winter hit, its behavior changed. We have a warm house, always 73-75 degrees inside. It was a bit cooler in the summer. This is not the first year I have this plant so I canít find the explanation why SUDDENLY it started to wilt.

At first, I thought it was dropping lover leaves. But when I looked closer - I saw that the plant was too weak to hold them and they snapped and broke. They didnít turn yellow, broke while green.

It doesnít wilt every day but every few days.. Itís so weird. I put a fort underneath itís leaves to help it hold them, while it gains its strength back. Because it does, and stands tall and normal for couple days - then wilts again.

I water it every other day. Spray with with water every day. Nothing changed?!...

Only winter came and we started to make our house a bit warmer, thatís all.

Noting, that along with my banana plant, my coffee plant shows same behavior...

Back to the banana plant, it grows a new leaf every 7-10 days. I almost feel like it canít keep up with growth? I give a fertilizer every few months.

Please help! Whatís happening?! I love this plant with all my heart and would be absolutely heartbroken if I lost it. It can be fine in the morning and be wilting by the evening. Emotional rollercoaster!!!!!

Let it dry out between watering, it's dormant season and their growth slows. They don't need as much water this time of year. Over watering in the winter will kill a plant.

I guess I can stop watering it so much but it just wilts more... and it pops a new leaf every 8-10 days (fully out and open) so Iím not sure why itís growing so much
