Ensete Glaucum | Snow Banana

this beautiful and very easy to grow and hardy Ensete Glaucum or Snow Banana. Hardy to zones 7-11 and can be planted outside with lots of mulch and frost protection. Outside it needs to be fertilized with slow release fertilizer and kept in full sun. This fast grower does reach 10 to 12 feet. I have had mine for four years and it hasn't grown more than six feet. It has beautiful pest free foliage and a vanilla white midrib running down the leaf. The seeds need to be soaked for 24 hrs and then sown 1 deep and kept at 68 - 77 degrees with light. These can take anywhere from 8 weeks to 4 months to germinate.
