Smile Transplant stress: Is there hope?

I am an indoor Dwarf Cavendish keeper. A week ago, I just transplanted two of them to new pots. Both of them are between 2 and 3 feet tall. Now they are both showing signs of stress: Limp, yellowing leaves, drying up on the edges. I have removed some leaves from both plants. How long will this condition continue? I am getting worried.

with pups usually works better to trim all but the last leaf but I assume that these were established plants they usually transplant well just give some extra water and keep out of direct sun for a week or so I have never been really happy with dc seems that rajah puri does much better for me a little tall for house plants though good luck and they should make it fine

Yeah. I like to see myself as the most northern banana farmer in the world. Two years ago, I actually harvested 22 bananas!

I'm too scared to trim that many leaves! But I'll do it as a last resort if things don't shape up. Thanks for the tips. I'll move them out of the sun.

I've had the 2 plants for 5 years. We've had our ups and downs. We even had bananas 2 years ago! This is the first time I've transplanted into different pots. They looked really healthy when I moved them.

Mist the plants with a weak solution of Miracle grow once per week. Plus, mist the plants 2 or 3 times daily with water. ... Due to the transplant shock the roots are not able to feed the plant. Folar feeding though the leaves will support the plant until the roots acclimate to the new pot & soil.

So Miracle Gro doesn't recommend doing foliar fertilizing with indoor plants. Perhaps I should not risk it.

Where do you get that statement? ...MG specifically states the advantage of 'Double Feeding" though the roots & though the leaves (folar) on the packaging.

Folar feeding hasn't hurt my nana plants and it hasn't other members on the forum that had the same problem. Folar feeding is regularly used in green houses with young plants.

I saw it on two separate Miracle Gro boxes. Maybe it's because of the number. I bought 24-8-16. It suggests: "For houseplants, do not wet leaves."

Thanks! I don't know if it'll ever happen again. It was kinda special, like a total eclipse.

That's why I don't want to lose these guys...

Mix 1/2 teaspoon of MG per gal of water. Then mist your sick nana plant. You asked for suggestions, this has worked for several forum member.

I'm desperate enough to try this. I'll update in a couple of days.

I could show you my post from that time ... if I could find it. Do you know how I can locate my old posts?

At first, after I discovered it was bearing fruit, I thought I would have to establish some complicated set up. I did get 4 couple of special flourescent bulbs to put in the chandelier above the plant, but that's it. I continued to fertilize every 2 weeks (20-20-20). No heater, or anything like that.

I just uploaded a pic of the bananas I raised. Then I realized I did that back then. Now there are two identical pics. If you go to my photo gallery, one of them is labeled "Final Product."
