RE: WANTED: Dwarf Banana seeds or pups

I have two pups from mine that are dormant. I transplanted them earlier this week and the roots are still alive. Im sorry this is my first year gardening. My banana tree did well this year. She has put out 6 pups this year. Full grown shes about 7 ft tall (this includes her top leaf)

I dont know if the pics will work here but Ill try...its of the mature banana plant and of the pups. Heres links to them...

Like I said before. Im a new gardener but I bring the babies in when it gets below 45 and take them back out during the day. I transfered them into new pots and the roots are still alive and the "trunks" are still firm.

I have two more babies coming up and will be digging them up tomorrow to bring them in before the next freeze at the end of the week.

You cant tell by the pics of the mother tree but the truck is a wonderful deep red.

Let me know if you want one of the bigger ones.
