Hiya musa basjoo New


I ordered some musa basjoo plants when they arrived one was all brown and dead and the other two were turning brown.
I assumed this was as they have been transported in a box, and when I picked them up from the neighbors they was keeping the box the wrong way up. So think they just had a ruff ride. Thought I would get them back to being healthy, So I have re potted them in a container with good drainage used john Innes no2 soil. I have had them in a sunny spot at first, then moved them to a spot that has morning sun and shade in the afternoon as I hear they prefer that, I read I should have eased them into the sun so that's not good. I have started giving them with liquid feed miracle grow NPK 6-5-5, I am watering them everyday and feeding them once every week or twice a week. They aren't looking well at all. Can you recommend anything to try to bring them back to health, and let me know if I am doing anything stupid would be very grateful for any advice etc, as I am not a experienced gardener am very new to all this and no very little I just want to see this plants grow big, strong and healthy Read lots of different things online but a lot of it says conflicting things so thought This has got to be the place to get advice from the experts.
