It may just be a language barrier, but I don't really quite understand your post too well. It sounds like she has dug pups whenever she moved, so the current pups would not be 18 years old...right? Since a banana pseudostem dies after it is through flowering, I'm not quite sure I understand when you say "no fruit since her flowers keep dropping off."

Just tell her to plant them outside.
