Default Newly transplanted pups wilting

Hi everyone, brand new here and brand new to banana plants... I bought 5 pups from a local neighbors backyard. She dug them up, and I transplanted them yesterday around 3 pm CST. There are several houses on my street with healthy banana plants so I assume our soil is good for growth. Their leaves are wilting. What should I do? I used original soil and compost. I watered immediately after planting and used miracle grow (the local I bought from said she used this once a week & they loved it). Please help! Is this normal? I put pictures in my gallery to see.

Update! The pups were turning brown so I dug them up and put them in pots. To my happy surprise there were new roots growing. Was this the right thing to do? Should I replant them or let them rest in a pot? I feel like the back and forth is hard on them!

Usually a newly dug plant roots are disturbed and severed and stresses the plant.
A stressed plant looks just like yours.
This is normal.
Once the roots sort themselves out you will fine.
Some forum members will trim the leaves when they plant

Some growers will cut the leaves off to facilitate growth and many times the plant will lose existing leaves because of the transplant.
