The Ensete ventricosum banana plant is not very big, in our climate in a tub more than 250 cm.
Requests a lot of water and fertilization during the summer months from April to September what the growth benefits. Has beautiful green leaves.
The trunk is quite thick, relatively thicker than other banana varieties. The circumference of the trunk can grow to 2 meters a real giant. Is a nice addition to the terrace, can also be planted in the open ground, but hardy this species is not without good protection.
But this banana plant can also be kept in a large tub.
Give plenty of water in the summer and a manure dung every two weeks from April to August.
Overheating the tub at a temperature above zero is good, and reluctant watering (clump in the winter to keep it dry). If in the ground, then well spacious and airy packing. 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).
