Bananas Brindando hello!

hi, I'm a new banana plant owner! I've recently purchased two banana plants (Jamaican red and Grand Nain) from Aloha Tropicals online. When I received them in the mail they were beautiful. I transplanted them into a larger pot (around 10") a day later. I added a mixture of 3/5 cactus palm mix, 1/5 top soil, and 1/5 compose to the larger pot. I further put a half inch layer of compose at the top to mulch them. I sprinkled about a tablespoonful of 10-20-20 fertilizer and a pinch of coffee rounds. I watered them both until I saw water start to trickle out of the holes at the bottom. They are located at the sunniest part of my yard in Kapolei, Hawaii.
Today I noticed a couple of the leaves had turned brown and wilted.
What's the deal??? Too much sun?
Can anyone help?

thanks a bunch! (no pun intended)
