Default Root issue with TC bananas

These guys are two years old this April. 3-6 tall. Noticed a few weeks ago they were wilting and hadnt watered lately. Thought maybe pots were too small so repotted and they had a lot of roots. Two-three weeks later they are still wilting, pulled them out and most of the roots are dead. So mixed up the soil with a bunch more perlite. Then repotted them. Now all the leaves are wilting except center leaves come out. Im thinking I should just not water them for a few weeks? Anyone?

without pics i would say replant in dry mix and don't water. have a banana that was doing good till i waterd. the potting soil looked like the sahara desert before i watered.

when their growing in the summertime they love moist soil. in the winter time not so much.

Are they still being kept in your unheated garage under shop lights?
That could be a contributing factor.

Maybe it was the humidity? Dry air means pots drying up faster.
