Default Pull the pup or not ?

I was given a Banana tree 3 years ago. I wasn't informed back then about pulling a pup from the mother plant. So now I have a big trilogy of a plant. Now im wondering if I should rock the boat, or leave it alone. should I split the plant into thirds ??? break them apart in 30 day incriments ??? What are your thoughts ???

Keep shoveling on the potash till the ground bleeds

I would leave it alone and keep the three plants together. Any additional pups you can remove and start a new mat.
My bananas:

Apple Manzano
Blue Java
Dwarf Cavendish
Dwarf Namwah
Dwarf Red
FHIA-1 Goldfinger
Grand Nain
Gros Michel
Pisang Klotek
Veinte Cohol

The 3 together look good to me too, unless you are trying to start some of them in another area. I'd leave them alone for now.
