Default Blue Java concerns/anxiety

I recently purchased 3 blue java banana plants and got them in the ground yesterday. I received them a few days ago in the mail and the company instructed that any damaged or torn leaves be removed.

All leaves fit that criteria so none of the plants have leaves right now. Iím concerned because Iíve seen no new growth and read that they usually produce new leaves every 2-3 days.

Did I ruin them by removing all the leaves?

Also, depending on their size, they should not be in full sun yet.. especially after just being shipped.

You Don't remove any green leaves even if damaged .... Dead & brown, yes. The green leaves may be torn or broken, but they are still functioning and supporting growth.



Banana plant under 30" tall should be shaded from direct sun, but with bright light. This is the way the pups would have grown under their mother plant. ... Small TC plantlets 6 to 10" tall, are a different story. They need shade & bright light while the new corm grows for about 4 or 5 months.

Right on, my mistake was not researching enough here. Damage is already done though. Luckily I have warranties on all 3 if they do end up dying.

They have been in full sun. I can throw up a little canopy with shade cloth. They are about 4 feet tall at the moment.

Not looking great/lack of green but there has been growth. I imagine this could be from too much sun and rot from removing the leaves. I do have what looks like a sword sucker coming up on one as well.

Here is a pic of all 3, any recommendations besides shading them or should I start there?

In the first and second pictures it appears to be choking. That's fine. Just leave it! It will bounce back with vigor. At this point mine will probably die.

I agree .... the top 2 are chokes. the top one may sort itself out if cut open vertically. Just down to the center stem until below the bulge in the pstem to release the pressure. This is a good time to see what a choke is. .... The 2nd plant has already busted out the side. But cutting the bulge/choke may allow those lraves to open and grow; or you can cut the pstem off just above the new break-out pstem.
