Default New leaf is brown and would not open

I have 4 Apple Banana planted and all 4 new plants started to have a same problem after 2 months in the ground (clay soil) -- New leaf (shoot) is brown and would not open. Or, sometimes, it opens, then turns brown at the bottom and the leaf breaks off.
They are all only 2-3 feet tall.
I called the nursery and they say it may be the drainage problem. But, 4 new plants are located next to a full-grown healthy Apple Banana plant.
Also, one of 4 is on the higher ground with gravelly soil, and still having the same problem.
Please tell me what I can do to save them!

P.S. Can't figure out how to post photos, but they are on galleries

Dang.. that's strange. I have grown a couple of thousands of banana plants in South Carolina and have seen that only in 'new' growth after cold weather. Be patient... it may clear itself up.

I had a California Cold that went through a case of the 'Brown & Mushies'...
I thought it was a goner...left it alone & let it do it's thing(after I cut the brown & mushy off VERY carefully).
It's a beauty now!!
So there's hope Ms. Luke!! ~Cheryl

Is there any chance that they came into contact with herbicide? There are several lawn herbicides that can be quite detrimental to bananas.

I have seen similar and can say for certain in my case it was night time cold damage. Good Growing, Stu

Hola Kahalu

Lastima Que Hasta Ahora Veo Estas Fotos, Pero Parece Que Fue Un Sintoma De La Enfermedad Denominada "pudrición Acuosa Del Cogollo" Si Esto Continuo Y No Pudiste Salvar Las Matas De Banana Esto Significa Que Brotaron Nuevos Hijos Y No Solo Uno Sino Varios Si Esto Fue Asi Hazlo Saber

Where did you get these plants from specifically?

Is there any particular reason you don't want to just remove some keiki from your large plant to replant?
