So is it needed to chop all the leaves after transplanting? I just transferred two plants today they have still very many roots, I really would like the plant to just continue growing like nothing happened? Or are all the leaves going to die?

No need to cut the leaves, the ones that die off you can always chop off later but it sounds like you got plenty of roots so you might not lose any. I have separated pups and got plenty of roots/corm, and they don't experience any shock. Of course, I have also separated pups where I get very few roots and they take weeks to recover. Same technique and height when I separate them but different results (sword suckers as well), anyone know why?

I don't know if anyone has posted this before in this thread but I found a great tool for separating pups. From what I have read, most people recommend a dig bar or shovel. I saw someone welded a horizontal bar to a dig bar and I really liked the idea but I can't weld. After searching Amazon I found something similar called a Dibble Bar with Steel T-Style Handle. I've always had a hard time getting leverage when removing the pups close to my fence and this worked out great.

Hands down the best tool I have tried so far.



Here is a link for anyone interested in buying one:

It is a very handy tool. I use one, too.

I still like mine. And if you can't weld just take the bar to a weld shop and you're in bidness. Thirty bucks or so.

Hello Everyone!
Recently took up interest in growing nanners
and new member to this site.
This is my first post so pardon for being wet around the ears....

Ive been told that it is best to produce a mat of 3 to 4 pstem
so you have a continuous plant that produces regularly in a rotative cycle.
I dont know the details or the timing or the height/age of the pups.

Requesting advice or link to read.

Thank you.
Ritchy from SoCal.

Welcome Ritchy.

If you haven't already read Jon Verdick's website, it's a good starting place for info about growing bananas in So Cal.

http://webebananas.com/culture.html

He suggests staggering pups by 6-9 months, i.e., so they differ by that much in age. I'd go a bit less than that, maybe 3-6 months.

One out of the two have started with leaves.This was the one on the left that had more of it's own corm.Two new pups came up after these were separated. Could be trading all summer long at this rate

A manual grass edger works too, welding skills not required.
