Default New Green Thumb Questions

Hey everyone,

im just getting comfortable with my green thumb and have a few questions about my dwarf banana plant. been growing it since June.

(hopefully you can see my pics in the gallery)

1. is it common for the early smaller leaves to die off as bigger ones come in?
2. I noticed a water drop at the tip of most leaves in the morning, even on days I dont water, that normal?
3. the newer leaves were bright green, now the bigger leaves have a brownish pattern on them, that normal? see picture.
4. I noticed the bigger leaves sag, normal?
5. its been 3 months of growing, am I due for a bigger pot yet?

Thanks everyone!

Agreed, plant looks healthy

Lots of bananas have those 'wine stain' markings on the leaves when they are young
