    Want to keep this in a pot this year and just in the last couple of weeks it’s sprouted 6/7 pupps. Should I look at repotting into a bigger pot this weekend?

    Hi @sambrentnall , a bigger pot is always better for bananas as they multiply so quickly. If you’re restricted on space you can just make sure you feed the soil regularly in the growing season to get those pups to grow nice and big. Once big enough you could divide them to create more space again.

    I’ve created a video walking you through the process of dividing bananas if that helps? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTd09pkt2wE

      Thank you Craig. Going to get a bigger pot for it this weekend and aiming to plant in a raised bed next spring.

        That sounds like the perfect plan @sambrentnall πŸ‘πŸ˜€
