I've had this super dwarf Cavendish for a little over a year now and until about a month ago it was looking pretty good. After we moved (across town, 10 minutes drive) it began to yellow and brown . The new leaves you can see seen not to come out all the way. I've had that happen before with one lead, but never with this many and not with this plant. The only thing that has changed is it's physical location, but it now gets more sun than it did. As you can see, the pups seem to be well.

Is this a case of simply over crowding? My pot is a little small I think. I was hoping to get a spring flower and summer fruit from this plant. I have since cut back some of the dead leaves in hopes of encouraging new growth.

Might be a nutrient deficiency of some kind. Watch the new growth for clues.
