nope...the plant needs better root formation in order to supply the leaves...clearly this plant has too many leaves for it's roots to support-cut the leaves in order to allow root growth, and all will be better.

Hi Shawn,

of course they will make it. Pushing out a new leaf is a sure sign for that, even if it
was pre-existent.

The plants are just suffering from transplanting shock. Bananas often react quite
unpredictably to a change of their environment. As far as the leaves are concerned
I strongly support the suggestions of Merce3 to leave them be. They serve as solar
panels as long as they are green, absorbing CO2 and converting that into plant mass.
If the roots cannot support the evapo-transpiration of the leaves, the plant will know
and shed them. Right now it does not appear to do that, even if the leaves appear
a bit limp.

Good Luck,
Olaf

Just remember most plant look pretty stressed once transplanted...yours will also.

Cut the broken leaves off ....a TRANSPLANTED plant does not need the broken leaves to flourish. At this point they are A LIABILITY(for your damaged roots to feed) and not an asset, especially if you do not have a nice size established root ball on the transplant.

Cutting them off is a personal preference, many people want a clean look.

I brought a plant out in the spring and all leaves broke within an hour in the light wind.
I cut them off....six weeks later I have four new ones.
Just my op.

fwiw, my transplanted arh had broken petioles when i transplanted it about two months ago. i didn't cut any of them off and they are still green as the day i planted them. if they weren't doing their job they would have browned and withered and some of them did, but the majority stayed green and it has shot two leaves out since.

Just tossing this out there.......Your plant is a tad close to the structure/house you might want to move it next year to give it some room to spread those giant leaves or you could do it now while your plant is in transplant mode.
In time your plant will most likely lean away from the structure, similar to the cannas in your photo.
