Banana plants became a PITA to me here being only a transition stage / form for the plant.
They eventually form a pond lily type of plant with surface leaves as they mature. Once it propagates surface leaves and roots the established plant losses the 'Banana'. They will rot and drop off has been my experience every time. Trimming off the roots and surface leaves will delay this but doesn't stop it.
