Default Droopy Banana

I split up my two plants(just got them, two different plants in one pot) and repotted them. After doing that we had a downpoor. The plant kinda fell over because the roots didn't have a chance to get astablished. We have had really heavy rains almost everyday since repotting(about 3-4 days now) and my one plant is looking a little droopy. The other plant is starting to perk up but the one, while it doesn't look to bad, isn't looking as good as the other. (the plant that is doing better is green, the droopy one is red) Is there anything I can do, or should I just wait and see? These are my first ever banana plants and I am worried that I may have done something wrong.

Thanks

If the soil is wet I would repot it.

Perhaps give it a stake to hold it steady until the roots grow, and be patient - they are tough.

If it continues to have a hard time standing up, prune some fronds off to lighten the load at the top.

Let it dry out but water it lightly.

Thanks everyone, I put some rocks around the base to help keep the plant upright and just waited. It has put out a new leaf that looks good. The older leaves don't look so good but over all the plant is looking better and healthy.

Thanks
