Media hound,

Thanks for putting together that lesson . I will follow that process to a T. Too bad I didn't see this the other day when a separated a couple of Basjoos. Boy are they ever sulking right now. They almost immediately had limp leaves . Any advice in reviving them?

Thanks

Phil, pot them up in a well draining soil, water them daily or better.
Mix a lot of humus and organic matter, compost, etc. into the soil.
That step is very important!
Don't trim anymore roots or leaves from here forward.
If you need to trim the leaves to keep the plant aesthetic, wait until they are dried and crispy brown!
In a few weeks, the plant should be better than ever.
Maybe offer it a somewhat shady spot, too, but with at least a little bit of sun.
Sulking or weeping leaves is common right after you cut the plant, it's amazing how fast it can happen, though! Makes you realize that in fact there's a lot of things constantly happening inside the tissues of the plant!

Thanks for the additional info. I have been watering them daily and the new leaves looks fine but the lower leaves are drying up. I will leave them as you stated.

Thanks again.
Phil

Hiya Re: Time to separate the pups for the Spring

We would like to know if Spring is the only time of the year that you separate the pups, or if it depends on what area that you live in and the type of tree ??

I have lost a lot of newly cut and potted pups to rot by over watering before the new roots grow out. In my own experiance it's best to use a 50/50 mix of perlite and planting compost, water once, then wait until you see new growth before watering again which usually takes 15-30 days. I have about a 90% success rate with this method. I should also note that I don't let the corms scab nor do I use any rooting hormone or fungal prohibiter.

Gabe showed me a little secret he has for rooting corms quicker where you peel off the bottom leaves exposing the fresh white area around the corm where the new roots will grow from. I still do it the old way but it's something to think about.

I've never really had a problem with loosing pups, especially one out of ten.
(knocks on wood)

Allow me to add, though, with my plumeria cuttings, I water once, then not again for several weeks.
The bananas get water and they seem to thrive just fine.

I wonder if it has anything to do with temps and humidity?

It's hot and humid here!
One could gather to use their best judgement when watering banana pups, be careful to not over do it.
For the record and mathematicians, I don't use rooting hormone on my bananas, either...

Jarred what about Musa Lasiocarpa? The pups seem to be coming out above the leaf stems. Gabe you can correct my interpretation -definition if you like.

I've yet to attempt seperating any pups from my lasiocarpa, but it does have some.

The digging bar is one of my most used tools. MVP tool ever for transplanting or uprooting large plants.

Should I try to seperate these plants in the foreground at this point in the year?

D and T

It is best to take the pups when they stil have several weeks of good warm growing weather ahead. That allows them to get rooted and established before they go "dormant" in cooler weather, and then they have less likelihood of rotting. Pups taken in Fall and Winter have a greater mortality rate, because it is so easy to over-water them. When the weather is cool, the plant uses less water, and there is less evaporation, so overwatering is easy.

What's worked for me is to make the cut but don't lift the pup for a week or 10 days. Less stress.
