A simple guide on dividing banana plants

How to divide banana pup plants

Dividing young Musa basjoo banana plant pups is a great way to get more banana plants for free. In this video I show you how I divide banana plant pups using a spade, knife and trowel. Splitting your pup plants is an easy job and once you have potted your new banana plant pups up and watered them in they will grow away well too develop more of their own roots.

As banana plants die after flowering, splitting up your pup plants will ensure you have more banana plants to replace your older Musa basjoo plant.
