It appears you have a stressed banana; usually if a banana has been stressed by either drought conditions or cold stress, it weakens, causing the leaves to bend at the should still fruit for you, but it will be a substandard bunch...good luck!

Bfern, if you save a digital pic in jpg., you can upload it to photobucket. It is free to join there. Pic the first link for a hyperlink, and the second link to directly post a picture. The hyperlink can be posted on GW on the place "here is a link you might find useful." The pic can be posted directly into your text. It should show up on your preview.
