Its a Musa Basjoo i have a few of them. You just cut them down and cover them up for winter and they are good to go. Mine are over 8 ft total height already and we still have a few months to grow before it gets cold. I fertilize mine once a week with a double scoop of 30-10-10 miracle grow and water daily...It works great for me.
