Not sure what you are doing wrong, but I can tell you that bananas are heavy feeders (fert) and like water. I would not underwater bananas, but instead water heavily and then wait until almost dry and water hard again and again and again. If you are not going to plant it in the ground soon, then I would also move it up to a larger container..

Bananas will take as much sun as you can give them, you just have to water more if you don't want to stunt their growth.
