My banana were doing great, now they look like poop. The bananas are all turning yellow and starting to rot also. anyone know what type of deficiency would cause the little banana's to turn yellow and rot while the plant still has green leaves?

I have never had luck with these things. Every time I see them, the bananas are buried.

I had the same problem was about to throw them away, then thought at the last minute to just put some roottabs in, pinched off the bad leaves and now it's doing great again.

This would be really great! It might also explain why the leaves are fat and green and the bananas are rotting away.
