Drummer Naner Newbie Ready for some good info

Good Day all,
I am a Banana newbie from Mechanicsville, VA. My wife and I got some plants from one of her friends at her work, have transplanted them in the ground, now have transplant shock now. What is the best way treat these babies at this point.

Welcome to the Jungle...

It takes 30+ days for the plant to sort itself out.

Hopefully you planted your new plants in well amended soil with lots of room to grow.


Have fun here.

Agree with cincinnana, but would add DRAINAGE! Basjoo to survive the winter hate wet feet. In fact we have only been able to get them to survive by planting where there is no run off onto them and the ground is not flat - in other words, at the top of a mound or hill. Our best mat is at the top of a root cellar mound! No problem with ground water :-) or run-off!

Are they in full sun? Sometimes they need some shade at first until they get going.

From the photos, they all look very happy. We just planted 11 of them and yours look better:-) We let ours dry well before planting which leaves the leaves rather ragged looking (dry referring to the cut corm which we do to lessen chance of rot. Generally no more than a week or ten days, no less than 3. And as said before, it takes a while for them to settle in!
