Default "First 48"Can you identify this banana stress culprit... tick , tock

Hello,
Planted three varieties about two weeks ago in north county San Diego. It is still pretty hot up here and the transplant seemed to affect them adversely. The Ice cream is pretty droopy. The Mysomore new leaf that is coming out is crispy burnt (I think i might have done that with a foliar chelated fertilizer), and the Goldfinger especially worries me because it only has two leaves but now there is some wrinklyness going on as you can see. Can anyone tell me what that is about? Also the plants are right near an huge old California Pepper tree that undoubtedly has the soil nearby acidic, to what extent I dont know. Anyways here are some pics. Any ideas, suggestions, comments or help are all good with me.

Just shock. They will be ok. But do stop on the fertilizer until they push at least a lead or two by them selves. You will be surprised on hiw durable these plants are. They are very hard to kill.

Well the Goldfinger took a nose dive today... I came home and both the remaining leaves were crumpled and bent off. I thought it was the heat, but examined the stem and base to find big black mushy spots. Damn! Looks like the root rot got me, and it makes sense due to the leaves being crumpled but yet feeling rubbery still and not dry. WHat do you think? So im going to return it to HD, should i get another Gold Finger or try a different variety?

If you can return it do it. Next time when you transplant water them sparingly. They store a lot of energy in the corm.

Wow. Really? i was worried that with the transplant and the shock that they were not getting enough water? should i shade it too? they are right next to the white fence and pool so they get a grip of reflected light

If it is from HD it is a potted plant.There should be no transplant shock.Dig a hole pull the banana plant from the pot ,the whole root-ball.Put it in the hole,build a basin and water it in.Twice a week even in this heat is enough water.If you do the planting in the evening it will work out better.

Yo Bobo hot!by C: Wow, if you got that "GoldFinger from Agent Orange" HD, how much please. I want one for up here to try out!

Also, I agree with the advice offered. Easy on the water, Shade perhaps for a day or two, no fertilizer for a couple weeks or so. Wait until plant perks up by itself, then a 1/2 cup of a medium 10-6-8 or so general purpose veggie fertilizer. Not 16-16-16...to hot!

Stay Safe,Tom
