Leaves Growing out of Stem
I adopted some indoor, potted banana plants. They were kept in windowless hallway for a few months before I moved them into my office that is filled with light. They are regaining their red variegated coloring back and seem to be happy and sending out new leaves. But I've noticed on a couple of plants that some of the new emerging leaves have split the stem, and instead of growing up out of the center of a previous leaf, they took a shortcut and just broke out of the side of the plant.
Can anyone tell me what is going on? The leaves that are coming out the side are stunted and split and seem premature. Seems like they hurt themselves breaking out like that. Is this normal banana behavior? Is there anything I can do, or should I just let nature takes its course?
They're such pretty plants--I'd hate to have them shrivel up and die.
Thanks in advance,
