Default Problems with transplant

Hi all, long time lurker first time poster.
Question, I just recently dug up some pups that a neighbor gave me. I took my time and used my hands to get as many roots as possible. I transplanted them into pots. I did trim off all the leaves as they were wilting pretty badly. It's been almost 2 weeks now with no sign of new growth. The stem looks healthy and firm but I just haven't seen any signs yet. Is this just something that I need to wait out and let nature take it's course, or could I have lost these plants?
Thank you kindly in advance

If you would've put them in shade they wouldn't have lost any leaves. They have time to grow roots. Once they start growing you steadily over 2 week period move them to more sunlight.. By the time they start pushing growth I have only watered mine twice.. : v)

Is it to late to put them in shade now?
For future reference, when I transplant, give them shade for awhile and let them adjust?

I don't think it's to late, but I don't know how it looks now. The ambiant light and the sun beating on the pup draws the water out of the pup. Small t/c plants should be treated the same way, but that's just my opinion.. :v)

I always put new transplants in shade at first, they cannot supply the leaves, because their roots need time to regrow, and adjust. When they start growing again, you know they have adjusted.

Like Abnshrek and Siege said, your pups are trying to establish a new root system. That will take some time and as you have planted them in pots, it should be easy to move them into the shade.
One thing I like to do with pups in pots before planting, is to dust the roots in mycorrhizae. It is making a huge difference for the pup in developing roots faster. There were pups I thought that were lost because I did not see any roots but apparently there were and mycorrhizae did its magic

Bananas do not usually react well to drastic changes of their environment. Moving them
from ground to pots, qualifies as such. How long it takes for them to develop new
growth is anybodies guess. Sometimes they do not even blink, but other times it can take
as long as two months. But grow they will, as long as the corm is reasonably sound.

The delayed growth is not necessarily to because new roots have to develop. It can also
happen, when the pot is moved "as is".

Good luck,
Olaf
