The only things I know about growing bananas is that they like lots of organic fertilizer, and lots of water.

When I grew bananas in south Florida, it took 18 months for the plants to produce fruit.

The stems of your plants look as though they have some kind of fungus - but I'm only guessing.

There is a blight of bananas world wide. I read it had spread to India. If you google, you can find it in detail. Bananas are in serious trouble world wide.
