Default Ae Ae's are so beautiful!

Am I weirdo for getting a vibe from a plant? These Ae Ae's just feel different! Majestic and like they are better than my other banana plants.... haha

Yeah, those pictures (and AEAE in general) are VERY beautiful! I also get a nice vibe off Ensete Glaucum...for some reason they make me happy with the general shape of them. Weird, I know.

I get my thrill from the ensete M.--a case of love at first sight (as glimpsed from gallerypictures here). I I now have 4 small starter plants.

Ae Ae is a ravishing beauty--stunning and sublime! Not for the amateur and inexperienced dilettante gardener like me.

Ya the Ae Ae's are a little more care intensive. They guy I got them from gave me all kinds of advice, some I am not too sure about some made a lot of sense. The one good piece of advice he gave me is on the pups, he said most people kill the pups from over watering them.

One piece of advice he gave me I didn't agree with is keeping the Ae Ae's root bound... He liked to keep them only pushing up one or 2 pups at a time and said that keeping them growing slower and somewhat root bound accomplished that....

Keeping them root bound does make them harder to overwater as well.

for some reason I'm always bucking the majority but my AE AE is as ease to grow as any other Banana i have my plant potted its close to getting root bound I'm sure but its going to have to wait until spring for a planting i water my Ae every day twice a day in the heat over 100 the only thing iv noted thats in any way different is there more sensitive to Fertilizer you can over do it easily they do appear to grow slower but they put out bigger leafs then most other Bananas so that takes longer right so there really not growing slower just bigger

I mite be a weired but all plants have a vibe to me you can feel when there happy and defiantly Bananas feel different then any other plants i have they feel like there leafing to me i know sounds crazy but thats the way i feel so i don't care if any one thinks ill of me for it when a plant grows that fast it makes them seem more animated so i think i endow them with intelligence that they don't really have its hard not to there like the super stars of the herbaceous world and as far as i know theirs only a few people here in Vegas growing them so that makes them even more special to me
