(Oh, I see now edwmax said once a week.)

When mixed per directions, it is not 24-8-16 any more. That is the dry powder analysis. ... As a mist, you are only applying may be a tablespoon, 2 or 3 to the plant. Which is a very small amount of fertilizer.

Does your plant plant look any better after you started misting?

I can say one thing for sure: They don't look any worse. I am encouraged that the remaining leaves have not worsened over the last 24 hours.

It has now been 9 days. I think the plants are drying up now, but I'm not sure. The leaves have dry parts, I have cut some off. Today I dug up the roots to take a look. They are shriveling up! I'm not sure if they are rotting or drying up. They soil is dry (I watered on Day 6) and so I watered well today after suspecting that they are drying up. Should I trim the roots again? I tried to upload updated pics, but the upload does not seem to be working today.

Here are the pics (the files were too big, so I shrank them, and it worked):

Rot is black soft mushy roots. ... As stated already, the white roots do not take up water. Small hair roots will have to grow and this will take several weeks.

Give some water, may be flood the pot and let the excess drain off. Then give water when the top 1" of the soil is dry. Get a moisture meter to check moist deeper in the pot. ... I see both plants have a new cigar leaf, so it appears they were recovering.

If the new leaves and the plant foliage keeps dying, then a repot in course builders sand may be required. If so, cut the pstem just above the come to stop rot in the pstem and you being frustrated with the plants; and trim some of the roots. I don't expect you will see and growth until next spring. Flood the pot with water the first time; then give a little water every week or 2 if dry.

Oh, how big are those pots? Use 12" pot or bigger. The extra soil and room will hold more water without being too wet and AIR.

Sounds like the plants are just in transplant shock. Depending on the plant that can last for weeks so just be patient with the situation and let them build their root systems

Maybe try some Fox Farm Grow Big.

Halleluja! (Insert music)

The cigar leaves that were already there have finally begun opening! A sign of recovery, for sure!

I am SO THANKFUL for the advice that I ave received here. Without it, these guys would be gone. And banana plants are hard to here get way up north.

So we are on the mend, thanks again!

One is 12" and one is 15". I started watering twice a week (like I do with my healthy plants) and that seems to be what it needed. I had been too afraid to water due to the root rot I was trying to eradicate.
