Default Banana repotting question

Hi, I have a friend who asked me this question that I don't know how to answer and am hoping somebody here does.

She bought 6 young super dwarf Cavendish banana plants from a nursery which measured about 15. - 20cm. (Musa Tropicana)

She noticed the roots coming out of the pot and decided to report them all but one died within a day , it's seems they went completely limp and felts like they had snapped at the base.

Any ideas?

Thank you!

banana plants are pretty tough - declaring them dead one day after transplant is pretty extreme. Bananas do experience shock after transplant
and should be treated with care - keep watered, keep shaded from harsh sunlight, don't fertilize until they have recovered and produced new growth. They don't bounce back immediately but they do bounce back...

Thank you. She concluded herself that she may have over watered them. I've told her not to throw them away just yet.
Thanks again

These are young TC plantlets. Do not place in direct sun or high heat. They benefit from misting 2 or 3's daily due to low humidity, especially if kept inside. ... Make sure the pots drains excess water out and do not let the pot sit in the water.



Banana TC planlets are difficult to grow for newbies and should be in a greenhouse or shadehouse, but can be done.
