    I have had a banana plant for about 2 months now. In that time the banana plant has grown quite a bit but, I have noticed that right before it produces a new leaf or lillypad, one of the old ones melt and wither away. It this normal? Or maybe do I have a nutrient/light/ CO2 deficiency?

    Are there enough nutrients in the tank? Are you dosing ferts? I would think thats whats happening where it cant substain its older leaves

    Rhyzomes are above the substrate and a green maybe a slight brownish hue to it. I do dose with flourish once a week and don't currently use co2

    Im guessing that like I said before that it needs time to settle in. Adjust to the water quality etc. Btw what is ur water parameters? What kind of lights?
