Default Ae Ae pups growing up

The Ae Ae pups I dug away from their mother are finally growing on their own.



Here's the base of the mother with still more pups.



Close up of the variegation.



Mom from a distance. Has to be over 20 feet tall!

Thanks everyone for your kind posts.

The pups will be going on ebay to see what the market will bear.

The problem with Ae Ae banana plants is that they get so tall. The first one I bought was planted in a greenhouse in the ground and it very quickly smashed into the somewhat high 12 foot ceiling. I really think that if you can't grow them outside, its not worth spending the money on one. Last week a Ae Ae pup went for over $200.

dablo93, So far out of the 11 pups the mother has produced, all have been variegated, but I have heard that sometimes one gets a green one and even an all white one the quickly dies because it can't make any "food" for itself.

I'm in south Orange County in CA and, as you can see from the photo, the Ae Ae is in a rather protected spot.

Very nice mother and babies! What is your e-bay name so we can watch? Can you let us know when you put them up there?
