Hi there, the leaves are green so will benefit the plant if left on, re-potting may cause stress and direct sunlight may burn the leaves......but with good drainage and light it will produce new leaves quite quickly and be the aesthetically pleasing banana you seek!

My first banana plant, a Super Dwarf Cavendish, had also arrived with most of the leaves bent , some broken off entirely. Now it's huge and lush and would never guess it was the same beat up plant from only months ago.

You'll be absolutely amazed at the fast growth... And soon all of those broken leaves will be a memory.

Give it a few months, if all goes well, she'll be looking great.
