Cool Banana tree needs help

I planted my three dwarf Cavendish banana trees about a week ago. I believe I may have over-fertilized them. One in particular is in bad shape. I used a non-organic 13-13-13 fertilizer since that was what I had on hand. (You can look at my gallery for photos).

Do I just wait it out or water to try to flush it out, although with all the rain around here it would be really over-watered. Would it be a good idea to transplant it?

Also please tell if banana trees need a sunny or shady location. Thanks!

It looks like it's in shock! It will most likely recover, and I wouldn't say that you're overwatering right now. Part shade is probably a good idea if you decide to move it.
