RE: Banana Leaf question

a pic would be very healpful to tell you what kind you have. it is normal for leaves to dry out and die soon replaced by new leaves. if the leaves that are yellowing and drying are new then you need a bit less sun and more water. they are heavy feeders so a little compost could help also
