The Ensete ventricosum Maurelli is a separate banana plant with particularly beautiful colored leaves. This type of banana does not grow very big, in our climate in a tank more than 2 meters.
The Ensete Ventricosum Maurelli requires a lot of water and fertilization during the summer months from April to September, which will certainly benefit the growth.
The leaf of this banana is really fantastic, beautiful straight up leaves. The top of the leaf is colored green to dark purple, the underside is dark red to bright red.
The trunk becomes quite thick, relatively much thicker than other banana varieties. The circumference of the trunk can grow to 2 meters.
After 3 years this banana plant can flower with a burgundy red flower.
This banana is a real asset to the terrace and the Ensete ventricosum Maurelli is also great to keep in a large cockpit.
Give plenty of water in the summer and a manure dung every two weeks from April to August. Roost the barrel at a temperature of + 6ºC or higher, and provide restrained water (clump in the winter to keep it dry). When shipping the bananas in a package, it is possible that we are cutting back the sheet of bananas. These grow back very quickly.
Winter hardiness zone 11 (+ 5ºC).
