Default 24-8-16 Water Soluable Fertilizer

Is that ok for Dwarf Cavendish bananas? I gave them a dose of it a day after planting. Did I do more harm than good?

Welcome to bananas.org
The wiki link below gives you some good ideas about fertilizing your bananas.
I personally never fertilize newly planted banana pups before I see new leaf growth. Just take it easy for now with water and and fertilizer.

So watering once a day right now isn't a good idea?

I don't even do that in my SoCal summer weather with my established mats. My soil is well amended with organic matter and very well mulched over, no reason to water daily. You want the roots to develop first and not to rot...

Same here - at least we expect some rain showers for a few days.
I use a nana fert ratio of 5-1-6 actually 25-5-30 when mixed. That's pretty close to Richard's nana fuel.
