Re: Banana; the cool zone type

Just cut it off, Ceres. Take the plant out of the pot, put a machete [or a bread knife] between the two stems and cut them apart. Re-pot them separately. They root very easily. The first banana I bought was a dwarf Cavendish; when I got it, it looked a bit like a green Indian club--no roots at all. I planted it in a pot for a few months, then planted it in the ground. It gave me five hands of bananas in about a year.

Jim, I have a Musa Cavendish with a sucker/baby. Can I remove that to make a
another plant? If so, how?
