Default Healthy?

I just got a few plants yesterday and have potted them. They haven't gotten better or worse, but since these are my first plants, I wanted to make sure they are good to go. THe first 2 pics are of a Gran Nain, and the 2nd of a Dwarf Cavendish. The "peels" on the main stalk are brown and the plant has a few brown spots. Do you think this is normal since they are you and just shipped?

Also, looking for the right fertilizer, I read somewhere that Tomato Fertilizer may be good. I know the opinions vary as to balanced, or your preference, but I have some and the content is 18-18-21. It is a Miracle grow powder that is mixed with water. Do you guys think this would be a good one to hit it with 2-3 times a week when watering?
