Question Red streaks and black spots of pseudostem.

There are some strange spots and streaking on my Dwarf Cavendish's pseudostem, and the symptoms seem eerily similar to that of Banana Bract Mosaic Virus, and one of the newer leaves has a copper-colored midrib, and a previous leaf is beginning to split from the pseudostem.

Here's the plants's copper-colored midrib.




Here's the leaf splitting off the pseudostem.


Here's the red and black spots and streaks.

Your plant looks good 👍. The "leaf splitting off" is normal. If you don't believe me, wait for someone else to confirm it
I also doubt your plant contracted banana bract mosaic virus, along with banana bunch top virus
Good job being aware of your plant, but I think you are sweating it. Your plant looks really healthy!
