New Owner,Musa Basjoo Banana Tree sagging leaves.Help!
 
Hello I am new to the Musa Banana Trees. I own 4 and I planted all 4 outside but 2 of the trees the leaves are sagging after I planted them. I mixed the soil with some miracle grow soil inground soil,just a little bit. And I gave them water once every day. Should I just leave them alone and wait? Thanks

Where are you located?
How long ago planted?
They will generally have "sagging" leaves when newly planted as they get established. Depending on whether bare root, pups, potted, etc. this can be a few days to a few weeks and if big plants few roots even longer.
Need to be very careful fertilising when just planted. After they get established they are very hungry plants, but need to be careful not to hit theme hard when just planted, especially if one uses dry fertilizer.
If in full sun, they will be particularly sensitive and it can take a month or more for them to settle in (again depending on what was planted vis-a-vis pup, potted, etc.)

Good luck with your plants.
Give them a month to sort themselves out in their new home.:)

Thanks. I had to cut the leaves yesterday they were browned and dried out.
