Why does the banana plant only bears fruit once?

    Because  that is how they are.  Some male animals die after having sex.  Now that would be terrible.

    In nature, the only goal of anything is to reproduce, so once the plant's done that much it really doesn't have a reason to live on.  So the plant drops its seeds, the parent plant dies, and the seeds and feast on the parent to grow.  It's an endless cycle that guarantees nutrition for the offspring.
