My Indoor Banana Tree
I have been enjoying watching my Dwarf Cavendish banana tree grow...and it has grown tremendously since I bought it. I'd highly recommend this plant to anyone who wants to try tropicals.
I have found it more rewarding to care for than a coffee tree and other tropical edibles that I've owned (although avocado, mango & pineapple aren't too bad). Part of the appeal is that it grows quickly. I find it fascinating how it will naturally drip water droplets on a regular basis from the ends of its leaves.
But, I have a question that I want to ask others about...if any of you even know. The plant has little suckers (that's what I would call them on any other tree) at the base. Are these actually suckers & some thing that needs to be trimmed off and thrown out or could they be taken off & rooted or should they just be left? Does anyone have any advice?
