A must-have plant for a tropical garden: giant, jungle-like paddles of rich red and green leaves unfurl from the thick leafy trunk of this extremely fast growing banana-relative. Grow in a warm sunny spot, and feed and water well. Do not plant in wind, as this will quickly shred the large leaves. Before the first frosts bring the plant indoors and treat as a houseplant, or for larger plants simply dig them up, cut off their leaves and place in a dry, cool place over winter. When planted out in rich soil the following spring, these stumps should quickly start to regrow. Feed regularly throughout the growing season with foliar feed.
I would just like to say thanks very much for the excellent plants that were delivered this morning at 8.30am.
They were all very well packaged and watered and I was very impressed with the quick delivery service.
I will be making another order again soon and will recommend you to friends and family
