Default Dwarf Cavendish pups

A few pups showed up around Monday and I was wondering how tall should I let them grown before taking them? Also what are some good organic blends of fertilizer

Some forum members would let them be since it is late in the season and then separate in the spring.
Keeping the plants in the container together for a bit does not harm them even if it looks little crowded.
The survival rate of the pup will dramatically increase and so will the size of the pup and its rootball.
The bigger the pup the better.
There are also some good Youtube videos which give a good visual on how to properly separate a pup.
Here are some pups that were tight in a container and were split.
Dwarf reds

Organic fertilizers will be on the end of season sales at the Big Box stores.
Buy what you can afford and stock up for next years growing season.
Any garden/vegetable type of organic fertilizer will work for the casual backyard grower.
