Best Time to Divide?

Posted by bjb817 TX 8a (My Page) on

I have two decent sized clumps of MB I'd like to divide, but don't want to risk harming the plants by doing so in the heat of summer.

Would it be better to wait until later in the year, next spring or is now ok?

You can divide them now and place the pups in the shade for a week or so. They are very resilient buggers.

RE: Best Time to Divide?

I've had bad results from dividing in the fall, they seem weakened and more prone to rot.

RE: Best Time to Divide?

I wondered about issues like that in the fall.

I gather early spring as they're just starting to put out new growth is the best time to transplant/divide?

RE: Best Time to Divide?

My banana has a couple of pups and I was wondering how tall they need to be before separating them?
