They can be any size, what is more important is if they are acclimated or not. If they have been growing in full shade or only moderate light, then you should slowly introduce them to full sun in pots if you do not want them to get damaged. If you stick them straight into full sun that's fine, but it's possible some of the leaves will burn and look ratty for a bit, but all of the new leaves after that will be able to handle full sun just fine, just keep it well watered.
Growing bananas in Colorado, Hawaii and Washington since 2004.
