Default Transplanting a Basjoo pup

Within the next week I plan to dig up a basjoo pup and relocate it to a another part of my yard. At the present location (on the side of my house) I can't enjoy my basjoo from my backyard. So I want to move a pup in a more visible location.

Is this a good time of year to transplant pups?

Here is a recent picture of the pup I want to move....the large one on the right



the large pup on the left in this picture




Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

Default Re: Transplanting a Basjoo pup

The pup looks strong and healthy - I've successfully transplanted much smaller pups than that (one of them was only 1" tall! Looked dead for 4 months, then burst into life!)

Now would be a good time to do it, so it will have a strong root system by the time winter comes.

Jarred posted a great step by step guide with pictures, it's the 4th sticky thread at the top of this forum!

Good luck,

~Joe

Default Re: Transplanting a Basjoo pup

When I was digging out the large pup today, I accidentally cut off two small emerging pups. One was very small, it was just a bump, the other had roots and was just about to break the soil line. The bump I threw away, but the pup with roots I potted up.

Two questions....

Does the small pup I potted have any chance of surviving?

Will the mother re-grow the two pups that I accidentally cut off?

Thanks, Chris

YES and PROBABLY
and I'm glad to hear that the banana pup seperation tutorial helped you out a bit.
I should do a new tutorial as now that I got a digging bar, I do it a little differently, albeit basically very similar...

Thank you! Your tutorial is great...

One more question. For my large transplanted pup, how many leaves should I cut off? I only cut off one leaf; there are still four leaves left.

It was really drooping this morning, so I watered it again.

I'd be careful not to overwater as there isn't enough root system to take up the water. Might give it a bit of shade to reduce the stress.

Personally, I don't cut off any leaves.

I don't cut off anything that's green.

When it comes to drooping, I agree with Carolina. At the most my newly planted pups get filtered sun. I would keep it warm and when you see new growth start to increase the amount of water.

I have actually used a misting nozzle to lightly dampen sand about 1/2in deep on top of pots. A few hours later the area right above the roots would be dry, and the rest of the sand would still be wet. This helped me determine how much water each plant was using. Time consuming? yes, but it was kinda neat to "see them drink". The slightly moist method is probably the easiest though.

I dont cut leaves unless they're dried and brown.

Very helpful...thanks everyone!
I didn't expect to feel this way, but propagating bananas is almost fun.

Hope I didn't speak too soon, my basjoo still hasn't recovered from transplant shock. Well, if it doesn't survive, at least I learned a lot in the process....

Thanks again
