Hi everyone i have 2 banana trees and they are starting to grow suckers and i wanna know if these suckers will slow down the growth of the mother plant, they are doing really well and i wouldnt like for their growth to slow down. If these suckers wont slow down their growth ill be happy to keep them. But otherwise they have to go. Thank you.

RE: Suckers... should i let them grow or not?

From my little knowledge about bananas yes they will affect the growth of the mother plant in some way, and also the fruit if its to have any. There is a video on youtube by a guy who grows and sells banana plants that talks just about this. He removes all but one sucker from mother plant each year and sells the rest. You can also replant them elsewhere and not let them go to waste.
