My Banana tree is developing brown stripes on its leaves!

#Banana I’ve been watering it every week and a half and it rains pretty often where I live. I’m not sure if it has something to do with the watering or something else.
20” pot without drainage
Last watered 2 months ago

It is normal for a banana tree that is less than a year old to do this. It happens with a good portion of variety of banana. Once it reaches maturity it'll stop doing that. My pups occasionally will do that. Don't worry, you're doing good. That looks like a healthy banana to me.
There's a possibility it could be getting over watered but I do know that there are several varieties that naturally have the reddish brown stripes on the leaves.
