Hi,

I have a dwarf Musa Banana which is around 3 years old, I have been keeping it indoors in front of a south window and it has been growing vigorously for the past years, since mid august I noticed that the plant is not growing any new leaves and suddenly it starting losing leaves quickly, the leaves would go yellow and then black in a matter of days, and from 20 leaves it went down to 3-4 leaves with this rate there will be no leaves left in two weeks !
Sad


I gently removed the dead leaves and the stem lost like 80% of its size

The plant has a couple of pups growing and they look healthy, soil is a good draining soil with 10% perlite and 10% expanded shale
I used to fertilize with a banana fertilizer every other week during spring/summer

any advice to save the plant is highly appreciated, pictures below,

Thanks,
