Default Nutrient deficiency?

The lower leaves on my Brazilian started developing brown edges. Anyone thoughts?

WOW... looks like that leaf will be replaced by another..
Looks normal to me for a small banana plant...just wait till next leaf.
If it just like that one there might be something up.....but if you are feeding it a balanced fert then all should be good,
could be environmental.

Whenever a lower leaf (the oldest leaf) shows signs of distress (for me) does not mean something is wrong .....
When new leaves show the same characteristics , then a cause for concern is warranted. For me

Is this your first plant????
First Brazilian, 3rd plant. My other plants have all looked healthier with much wider pseudo stems. Both of the others are some kind of Namwah. I'm having a hard time distinguishing between normal variances in the different varieties of bananas.

So this doesn't look like a Manganese deficiency?
