this is the first time I am growing a banana tree. I am growing a dwaft banana tree inside under florescent grow lights. When I first started the leaves were a very nice color green, and now the leaves are starting to turn yellow and brown. when I water them the water ph is between 6.0 and 6.5, I have been growing the tree for about 6 months now. I have attached pictures

It may be too much water, let it dry out between watering. In the dormant season they don't use much water.

Excessive water during winter, or low temps. Half of my bananas look like that. I water once a week, to week and a half.

Ok I am glad that it is just a watering problem

Also could you tell me about how long they grow before they start to grow bananas

And thanks for the help

Check the wiki for that info. It depends on what kind of banana.
