Joy Is this a flag?

Sorry, Google translator. Tell me, is this a flag in front of the bud or not? the outermost leaf is 2 times smaller than the others. and now there has been no movement for 3-4 days.

Since I do not see a picture of that outermost leaf that is smaller my answer is a guess. A flag leaf is a little stiffer and maybe thicker than other leaves. The small outermost leaf, you mention, is probably the flag leaf and what is trying to emerge now is a flower that will produce bananas if conditions are good for the plant.

I am not very familiar with the dwarf bananas but that does look like it is flowering. It looks healthy enough to make fruit.

Assuming no major changes have been done to the growing conditions, that looks like a flag leaf.

Extra info (just for fun), it's the plant gradually changing its leaves from vegetative to flowering structures, and flag leaves are kinda an intermediate stage. Somewhere between a true leaf and a bract that sheaths/protects the flower to come.

The leaf before the flag will be half the size of a regular leaf. That is when you will know when the flag leaf is coming.

from what i have read the plant relies on energy stores from its lifetime but you could still fertilize normally with a fruiting ratio of macronutrients and possibly give it a foliar feeding
