Musa lasiocarpa propagation

taxonomist(7b VA)March 1, 2011

I have inherited a Musa lasioicarpa(now Musella lasiocarpa) which was extremely potbound. I was forced to cut thru the very heavy root leaving a large area exposed. Can I expect this old rascal to survive? It is seven years old ,but has never flowered. All info will be much appreciated

I would expect it to survive, corms can be divided and muesella lasiocarpa is borderline invasive in my yard
