Default Ensete Maurelii one month of growth

From this:




To this:




It went from roughly 1 ft (leaves included) to 3 ft (with leaves) in just a month!

One of my neighbors even made a comment about it, like this: O_o !



The leaves are really neat, sorta feel like rubber and almost look iridescent.

Newest leaf has alot of red. <3

Beautiful plant! Looks good!

This one is strictly ornamental right? How big do these get?

That is correct, the fruit isn't edible, but the plant is definitely worth having IMO

From what I read, potted or in cooler climates approximately 8 to 10 feet.(And maybe smaller depending on size of pot?) In ground in tropics around 20ft or so.

Wow! I didn't know ornamentals got that big!
I always thought they only grew to a couple of feet. That's huge!

Wow. Very colorful plant. Do these do well in shady areas or do they need full sun?
