Default might be drooping after transplant to pots help

I just transplanted two small banana plants to 1.5 gallon pots. I used Miracle-Gro Cactus, Palm & Citrus Potting Mix with about 6 cups perlite and a 2 cups peat moss and the rest is the potting mix. Its 3 days after i noticed the leaves are a little droopy and a tiny bit yellow on the tip.

Should i removed it from the pot and use something else for the soil or is it just translate shock and it will recover?

Also i watered it once in the beginning and its inside and im using a growlight.

Default Re: might be drooping after transplant to pots help

A picture would help! ... I question the use of the peat moss here. The peat acts as a sponge to hold water. This is not what you want to happen and defeats the purpose of the perlite (IMO). ... How bad was the roots damaged when repoting?
