If you just transplanted it may be that you need to trim some of the leaves. When I transplant between pots, to the ground, or from ground to a pot I always cut all but a few of the leaves so it doesn't overtax the roots as they acclimate. The problem is self correcting as those leave brown up, or you can cut them back now.

(then again, it could be gremlins!)

my guess is that it's not acclimated to full sun yet. you might want to start with 50/50 shade and gradually move into full sun.

Transplant shock. IMO or at least from my experience with naners, especially if they are young. Its putting (diverting) it's energy into getting the roots established instead of growing, hence that's why the leaves are dying. Some recover quicker than others and some don't recover at all. In the mean time i would keep it out of direct sunlight. Time will tell!. I could be wrong, but makes sense to me. lol

First of all, assuming your nanner is inside, give it as much sun as possible always! In my experience, through glass windows it is not possible to get too much sun (unless its a very small tissue culture plant). People in other threads have told you that basjoos are fairly forgiving indoors, however I have most certainly found the opposite to be true. Due to the long "floppy" (bad term, just generally unstrong) petioles of the basjoos, they leaves can get very droopy and weak under the reduced light environment indoors..

Now with this being said, it is natural for some of the bottom leaves to die off the plant as more grow. This I find is actually fairly common indoors due to the very low humidity we have indoors during the winter. U will notice the edges drying first, then the rest of the leaf. Your nanner seems be doing better now, but w/o pics its hard to tell. Bananas really enjoy a lot of root space bc they can transpire a tremendous amount of water when they are actively growing, and so need a lot of root mass to absorb all this water. Dont let this fact confuse u with the fact that bananas dont like the soil to always be wet. In fact your banana will be especially susceptible to rot right now since you recently transplanted to a larger pot and it has yet to fill all this soil with roots. Because of this reason I also highly recommend not to cut any (green) leaves off as the plant needs them to pull water from the soil. I my opinion I would not recommend removing leaves when transplanting, with the exception of a newly removed pup, which does not have any roots yet to uptake water (since the leaves will die regardless, and you dont want to dehydrate the corm at all).

Edit: I just saw your pics. They are just small plants but the new leaves look healthy. They should grow well for u now in their big pots. Just give them lots of sun light and be very careful not to overstate. The the soil dry right out before water each time.

To me it looks more like cold damaging the leaves than too much sun. Was the leaf touching the glass? When u transplanted did the roots look nice and white or more brownish? Yes im in zone 5, this winter is probably more like zone 4 lows though. I have several varieties of bananas, all edibles and most ornamentals stay in pots all year and some are ground planted in spring and dug back up in fall. I have several basjoo mats that stay outside all winter, although this winter will be a real good test with many nights hitting -30 C. I think your basjoos are your best bet at overwintering outdoors there. Most people would wait one more year to plant them outside, but im all for just getting them outside as they grow so much faster in the ground and in one year you can get them to a decent size. So since u have several, I would recommend maybe planting 2 outside this year if u have a protective corner near your house, and that way u will have 2 still safely in pots incase the other 2 dont make it. Also a ground planted nanner should give u some pups to pot up, as added security.

No it wasn't on a window an it has only been out when it has been warm enough 50-60 and yes the roots look healthy thick and white and ya our winter was awful here to an I only have the two a basjoo an orinoco but I'm hoping mayb I can get some pups off of them this year so I can see if they come back next year an like u said if not I will at least have pups I really don't care if they fruit I just mainly like the look and want them all in ny yard lol ) but I don't have a lot of space inside for them so they have to stay outdoors unless they are smaller . I can't believe you are raising so many in zone 4 wow that's amazing because I know it gets cold here I'm assuming it worse there though!
