Default My First SDC Pups

On my first Super Dwarf Cavendish (that is 16" from dirt to top of the pseudostem trunk) I now have 5 sword pups growing in my 16 gallon container. No big news for many of you, but cool to a new grower. Now to decide how big to let them get before separating some of them to give to friends. Any suggestions?
And any suggestions of what can I do to increase my chances of a bloom?

I would have reduced the size this pic I posted if I knew how. I have since added some dirt around the roots that are showing.

Nope. I recently transplanted it(Caven) from the 16 gallon to a 21 gallon pot. In the process I removed and potted three of the pups. I gave the best pup to my Mom and the two others are sitting under the mother plant. I still have 5 pups that are still attached to 'Caven'. Later this spring when the nights warm up I plan to plant some of the pups outside to start a mat. I will also take the Mother plant outside to get some sun to increase the chances of hopefully some fruit. This summer I will only be one year since I was given my SDC from my wife as a start itself, so I hope I am not being overly optimistic to get some nanners later on this summer.

See my blog for pictures.

So much for a quick reply, you got me mono-logging about my kids.

Definitely do not transplant them off any time soon or they will likely not have enough roots to survive. Congrats on the pups, though.

Awesome, Now just watch your baby grow. Soon enough you will need a 20 gallon pot.

You can keep in a small pot to retard the size and keep it as an ornamental, but no bananas for you.

Pallen your nanner seems to be planted very shallow. If ure gunna put it outside in the wind I would be careful. Maybe top dress/mulch with 1-2" of worm casting or compost, whatever u got room for.

You are correct, since the above picture was taken I added more soil. And since then this SDC has been replanted in a 21 gallon wine container liner.

I don't know why the plant split there, it was during an active growth phase. It took almost two weeks to totally stop weeping. Being new to nanners I let it go as plant growing pains.
