Red face I Need Help!

I separated a 4 foot pup from the mother plant but I did not get the roots, only the white underground stem part. Another small plant had started to grow and I took that and planted both of them together in soil prepared for tropical plants.

Does it have a chance of growing, or will it die.

What can I do?

Thank you professionals.

It may still grow. I get breaks at times and I just plant them to see how they do. Often they end up growing and once in a while just don't. They parent plant will probably make plenty more. Digging a hole by the plant you want to remove helps release pressure and limit breaking.

what he said was yes it will be probably ok. put it in a pot with some good potting soil. give it some water don't drown it and sit back and wait. don't give it no more water no matter what you think.

I've had some come up with no roots that made it. Keep it out of the heat and direct sunlight and mist the leaves to keep them from dying off.

Default Re: I Need Help! THANK YOU!!

Hello, folks!

Thank you so much for your help. We had rain a few days ago, and yesterday morning I checked on the pup I planted with NO ROOTS, and happy to report that it has rooted (see photo) in my opinion. Not only did the large leaf unfold, but a new leaf is also growing!!!!
I have about 4 new pups sprouting up from the mother, but they are not too tall yet. I will take a couple and try my luck at indoor planting. I bought two very large planters to plant them indoors. I'M SOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED!!! No roots, and it survived!

You have nothing to lose by letting it be and seeing what happens. Bananas are amazingly resilient.
