I've been keeping it indoors (London UK) and its been doing OK for the last 6 months (some leaves browning and dying but new leaves replacing them at the same rate) but recently in the last 1-2 months the leave yellowing/browning has accelerated and now the new leaves are also dying.


Initially I thought I was overwatering so pulled back on that and kept spraying to keep the humidity up in summer but no luck. In the last month or so 4-5 healthy looking pups have emerged as the main plant is declining

I have had the same issue with bananas as houseplants. I haven't been able to figure it out myself, so I just allow the pups to come up and replace the bigger p-stems. Not sure if you posted this question in a thread (couldn't find it), but it might get more attention if you do so. Good luck and let us know if you come up with any fixes.

Do an annual soilless mix change for the plant.
Fresh mix does wonders for a plant
Try not to disturb the root mass too much in doing so
Your plant requires a light mix for year round indoor growing.
Inspect the roots for health while you have the plant out of the pot.

Thanks - will try the repot (I could only find "Growth Technology Cactus & Succulent Focus Repotting Mix" online).


Yes it is in the forum as well (http://www.bananas.org/f311/leaves-dying-but-new-pups-53728.html#post349537) - some suggested it wasn't getting enough fresh air but we have a large sliding door open next to it most the day so I suspect it is not that.
