steve, on basjoo, how big do you let the pups get? Mine are all sword pups. You make the cut right at the mother plant even if the pup is 8 inches away?My sikkis are pupping right next to the mother.One sikki has a sword pup and the other has a fat leaved pup.

Here's some videos I just uploaded to the gallery. I took them a few months ago.
The plant is a Raja Puri and the videos show another easy way to seperate the pups - using a pry bar.
Please pause the second video and start it after the first one is finished.

What you do is jab the bar at the base of the plant and move it back and forth to pry the pup up and away. Then reach down at the base of the pup, grab it, and lift it up.

Great visual on separating a pup, Thank You Jarred, I've never done this before and I should have with DC. just keep getting bigger pots and transplanting the whole nine yards, Wife says I'm chicken,( She's Right of course ) Scared of hurting them, now in zone 5 with winter approaching not sure if it's a good idea to separate or try and overwinter in the big pot, any suggestions? Thanks again for video

Smile Re: Time to separate the pups for the Spring

Great video, media hound. It just surprises me that mother does not get damaged. I have only had success with two bajoo pups, but no luck with my two attempts at my sikkis. I think I was afraid to apply that much pressure against the mother plant.

Thanks for the comments guys.
Yes, its ok to use pressure against the mother plant.
It's pliable enough to take (some of) the pressure of using it as a wedge for the pry bar.

I removed a pup about a week ago using the same method. When I moved the mother plant around it made me really nervous but pup and mom are doing great still.

Default Re: Time to separate the pups for the Spring

Hi everyone. I haven't been here for a while, but need to know if I should leave the pups on my Ice Cream banana. Last spring I planted it inground after being in sunroom all winter. It is now about 14 ft tall & too tall to repot in there. I dug it up 2 days ago & it is laying on side in yard to dry roots out. I will lay it on it's side on floor in cool sunroom - covered of course. Thank God we are having record breaking warm Oct - no frost yet.
I left 4 leaves on top that are cut in half, & cut all 4 pups leaves except for the top ones. Is this OK?
I would like to cut the biggest pup (about 3 ft) & pot it, or should I leave them all attached to mother for winter & let them all sleep?
Thanks for any advice & opinions.
Patty

I just read Big Dog's "Time to put 'nanas to sleep" thread & it seems I'm doing OK.
I'd still like to know if this is a good time to cut the 3 ft pup off & pot it up. I'd like to give it to a friend for Christmas - who has a huge south facing window. Thanks again.

Hi Patty:
Welcome back!
I was gone too for 3 weeks.

I asked this question in another forum regarding my 2 dwarf cav that need to be separated and Joe Real replied to wait till Spring to do it.

Question:
Dwarf Cavendish.
Mom and daughters but it seems the daughter is bigger than the mom.
Should I separate them now or wait till Spring ?

answer:

Spring is the best time Benny. Plants easily recover from stress. If they have damages or cut and it is getting colder, they would be vulnerable to rotting away.

Thanks Benny, nice to hear from you too!
I have been busy all summer...workaholic this year.
I'm so anxious to take a pup and am thinking of taking second biggest one to pot up. If it does'nt make it, I won't feel so bad.
Anyway, the big IC banana is laying on floor in north side of sunroom with small piece of tarp under rootball, & then wrapped in old towel above tarp.
No water on rootball all winter huh?
The smaller IC is dug up & potted up in 5 gal. bucket & will be OK in S room w/ 12 1/2 ft ceiling. It will keep growing slowly
The reason one is smaller is that last winter one was in a smaller pot & that is all. I got them last year June (06) in 2 inch pots at about 2 inches tall. Maybe I'll get 'nanas off both next year!!??
I hope they will be OK in sunroom...the humidity is at about 70*-80* there & hopefully that is not too high for the one laying on floor...it is also cool in there too.
Joe Real always has good advice too! Thanks Benny
Patty

My opinion is that if you can put your bananas in your sunroom during the winter and can regulate the tempt not to go below 40 degrees then I think it is OK to separate now. That's my experience and it depends also the kind of banana you will transfer for its hardiness.
Yes, I am anxious to have flowers in my bananas like an expectant father whose wife is expecting a baby. That's what I am. I am a banana nut and I should put this in "are you a banana fiend... ".
The best candidate is Joe's dwarf Brazilian and everyday I am looking for a sign of a flag. I am hoping that it won't and wait till Spring but if it does, then I will have to do something to protect it. The other kinds are my dwarf cavendish who are growing very nicely in wine barrel.
It's nice to have a 12 foot ceiling and that's what I will add on not as a sun room but a cover for my bananas. I bought that thing at Costco and I just don't have time to put it up yet. A free standing I can't remember what it is called gazebo maybe.

Now I know what it is called. It is called "Pergola". It measures 110" x 140" and the height is 7'1" but I plan to adjust the height to 10-12 feet.
