Default Re: Time to separate the pups for the Spring

End of March I potted up the 11ft nanna that was laying dormant on floor & it now has a new 5 ft high leaf! One of the 3 pups died from rot I guess, so I'm taking it easy on water till it gets planted inground. When established, I'll chop pups off.
Could someone tell me what a "flag" is? I'm hoping for a flower soon & on the new big leaf, I don't see anything pushing thru --like a new leaf. But, please tell me what a flag is. Thanks
Patty

I have a pup that is around 18" tall and is 12"-14" away from the mother plant. How would I go about seperating this kind of pup?

dig until u see the corm underground and just slice right down the middle thats the easiest way to separate a pup cause its not really hurting the mother ....lol thats what i would think is the answer just my 2 cents

Not sure what your saying by "slice down the middle".

Should I separate it right at the mother corm where the rizome comes off, just like as if the pup was 3" away?

Or.....should I cut the rizome about halfway between mom and pup, and hope the pup has enough corm of its own to survive?

well depends also how many roots the pup has, i mean if it has alot then its ready to leave the mom :P so to speak :P yeah right in the middle....but first dig down and expose the the attaching mom and pup then u will get an idea if it has enough roots to be divided

that shouldn't be a problem if the pup is 1 foot away cause its really not attached to the mom it probably has a long rhizome looking thing instead of being 1 inch or right next to the mom

are you fert? is it getting enought sun? maybe its just a slow growing nanas, and it just pups slowley.

p.s. on the idea of a hammer to keep people from touching the nana tree.maybe they should try this:

You got me wondering - how deep was the mother corm planted?

I have no idea how deep it is. These bananas are in a mat that was here when we bought the house 10 yrs ago. This are the only ones I have that I don't know what kind they are. I have removed many a nanner pup from this group to thin it out, but this is the 1st time I have had one be this far away from the mother.

I thought perhaps if it was a newly planted banana plant, perhaps it was too deep and the pup had plenty of space to reach out so far.
I have had similar occurrences when a bermuda border was in the way, or an old root from a since removed oak tree being in the way. Perhaps a big old root or something buried made the pup travel what seems so far?
Anyway, cut it as close to the mother plant as you can, a digging bar makes it very easy.

OK - thanks Jarred. I shall treat it just like it was a pup sitting right next to the corm.

I dug it up and guess what.............It wasnt even connected to the other corm. It had its own corm and root system. How did that happen?

This is such a great tutorial! Thanks. How great to see it relisted at this time of year. I followed this tutorial method last fall and had great success.

Default Re: Time to separate the pups for the Spring

I followed the tutorial and divided up 9
bajsoo's on Saturday. They're
approx 3 feet tall. I've been keeping them on the
edge of the car port so
that they won't get the hot direct sun. They got
about an hour evening sun
today and really started to wilt (leaves). Is this
normal? Should I not
worry about the leaves and leave them out on the
patio unprotected? How
long does it generally take for them to grow root
mass and begin new
growth? how much sun should they get? morning, all day,
evening?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yayy! Thanks so much for this great tutorial, I successfully separated a pup and re-potted mommy and baby. Both are doing well. It was great to have those big pictures and fool-proof (me-proof) directions! And even though it was my first time, it went so quickly because your tutorial prepared me! Thanks bunches! Now all I have to do is figure out what kind of nana I actually have! See you all in that thread!
