Default Bananas are shriveling!

Hey Everyone!

I've got another one for you, I have a Praying Hands & two ornata's that I planted about three weeks ago. But they dont seem to be doing that well the p-stem has shriveled on one of the ornatas, so Im concerned. I only water them maybe once a week when they need it. I usually check the first 1-2inch to see if it needs, so Im confused as to what Might have done wrong. here are some pictures. thanks for your help!

do not dig it up, I have had some that take for ever to get going. every time I think one is dead I dig it up and find good roots and pups coming up, then it usually dies after the transplant. so maybe just forget about it and see what happens.

if I have a fresh transplant I will put it in the ground, but anything I get in the mail or is small I start them in a pot and put it in the shade.

I've dug around it and the corm seems to be firm.

first off never transplant in the summer heat makes plants die you need to water (4 times a week)a bit more after a plant is moved its going to go in to shock so your going to have to give it a bit of help more water and protect from full sun until new leafs come out then slowly acclimatise it to the sun get some kelp extract this has chemicals in it that stimulate growth use a week solution half strength if the corms alive that will help after you replant a banana it has to grow new roots that takes some time Bananas grow new roots ever 4 months so don't worry but don't do the summer thing again spring is the optimal plating season this is true of most plant but not all

In summer heat its hard to over water a Banana whats your day time temps?
