Party New to Bananas.org and new to bananas

Hi everyone, I just received my first banana plant which is a mahoi. I transplanted it this past weekend in a mix of 1/3 composted chicken manure, 1/3 perlite, 1/3 peat moss. It looks like it may be going through some transplant shock. What does everyone think?

Okay good, that's what I've been doing. What about watering? I watered once when I transplanted on the 22nd. The soil has stayed a rich & dark color, not drying out. I've read about people overwatering and I didn't want to make that mistake.

Go easy on the water until you see new growth. It does not need to stay wet only slightly moist.No fertilizer until it starts growing
