Default Newbie in Banana Land

I just bought my first banana tree, a dwarf cavendish. Technically it's a Father's Day gift for my husband, but he just likes to eat bananas, not grow them, so I will be in charge of keeping it alive. I am hoping I succeed. I live in Southern California, and we recently got a bunch of bananas from some acquaintances who have a tree and loved the idea of having our own home-grown bananas. I really wanted a dwarf Brazilian, but they didn't have any at my local nursery.

I'd welcome any advice or tips. I plan to transplant the tree from the pot to the ground early next week--anything I should do to encourage success?

I've been reading through old threads trying to glean some knowledge--I truly appreciate the wealth of information here!
