Default Re: What are these ? What is he selling ?

Ensete ventricosum doesn't produce pups in the classic sense, they are normally either grown from seed or from tissue culture. There is a way to force them to make sucker-like plantlets, but few people do this in the US, and it looks and sounds like they are selling seedlings, which is fine. But still, $100 for even a 3ft plant is too much, they grow quickly to that size so you're not really buying a lot of gain there. If I was feeling particularly spendy, I might consider buying a 3ft plant at $50 if thats all that was available, but I'd still prefer to go for a cheaper and smaller plant since they grow so quick anyways.
Growing bananas in Colorado, Hawaii and Washington since 2004.
