Red banana plant

Read more
This banana plant is organically grown! The red banana plant is very unique and has beautiful red, purplish leaves, with a thick trunk. Its leaves can grow up to one meter long!

It grows as fast as a Musa basjoo and usually grows 200-300 cm high (in a tub) in the Dutch garden.

What's very special about the red banana plant is that after 3 years it starts flowering, and then it gets burgundy flowers in the top.

The Ensete ventricosum Maurellii is a fairly fast grower, but stops growing when the temperature drops below 14 degrees.

We therefore advise you to keep the plant warm and only put it outside when the temperature is above 10 degrees Celsius.

If you want to buy a red banana plant, we recommend the Ensete ventricosum Maurellii. It's a real winner.The red banana plant is very unique and has beautiful red, purplish leaves, with a thick trunk. Its leaves can grow up to one meter long!

Let op, belangrijk!
Some leaves can be removed for transport.
Despite the care of packing, it can happen that a leaf breaks off during transport.
That's not so bad you can just cut it off, then a new one will grow very quickly.

We always recommend to immediately repot a purchased plant into a larger sized pot, because the pots sold are usually completely rooted. It allows the plant to root more, grow more and it's better for keeping the soil moist.

Most often the plant is around the minimum size. The height of the plant is always incl. pot height. Its actual height depends on the various sources of supply and how long the plant has been staying and growing in our stock environment.

Let your plant shine

A plant enhances the atmosphere much more and becomes more beautiful with a decorative pot that matches both the plant and its space. The recommended diameter of a pot for this Ensete ventricosum 'Maurellii' is 12 - 8 cm. This is not only an eye-pleasing proportion, but also makes caring for the plant more easy.

All interesting and necessary information about the Ensete ventricosum 'Maurelli' is found in our encyclopedia



Pay attention

Some leaves can be removed for transport. Despite the care of packing, it can happen that a leaf breaks off during transport. That's not so bad you can just cut it off, then a new one will grow very quickly.

Watering

This plant should be watered regularly. During sunny periods we recommend watering every day. During less sunny periods we recommend watering once every 3 days, unless it has rained. The Ensete ventricosum Maurellii, like almost all banana plants, consists of 80% water. We therefore recommend that you keep the root ball well moist.

Placement

The red banana plant needs a place with a lot of light to grow quickly, but it can also be placed in a place with a lot of shade, only the banana plant will grow a bit slower.

Nutrition

Nutrition is very important for plants. We recommend the use of high quality Mediterranean nutrient tablets, these are simply pressed into the soil next to the plant and the plant will keep its dark green leaf colour.

Frequently asked questions, FAQ

Is the Maurelli hardy?

The red banana plant can tolerate up to +5 degrees Celsius. below that, it becomes harmful to the plant, so make sure the plant is in a warm place in winter, and not in the garden.

How to care for an Ensete ventricosum 'Maurellii'?

You can find everything about the care of the Maurelli in our encyclopaedia article.

When the Maurelli water?

When the red banana plant is standing outside it needs little water during colder periods, but during the hot days of summer it needs water every day, sometimes twice on the hottest days. In between, it can be watered once every 2-4 days, depending on the temperature. You can feel this from the soil. If the soil is reasonably moist, the banana plant still has enough water.

What kind of soil does the Ventricosum Maurelli want?

A red banana plant loves good nutrient soil. For example, you can spoil the root ball with a bag of Florentus Mediterranean Nutrition Soil, specially developed for Mediterranean plants such as the Maurelli. This allows it to root extra well and provides it with the right nutrient base.

How to prune / cut a Maurelli?

For a Maurelli it is a natural thing that leaves become dry and die off. You can simply cut them off close to the trunk. The banana plant does not suffer from this. It is also often recommended to cut off the leaves before the winter so that the energy does not go there to grow, because the new year will bring new leaves.

When putting the Ensete ventricosum Maurelli inside?

The red banana plant can withstand the hot sun well, so in summer it doesn't have to go inside. It also can withstand rain, so in autumn and spring and rainy days of summer it doesn't have to go inside either. But when it's cold from 5 degrees Celsius it gets heavy. Then it needs to be taken to a warmer place.

How to cut / propagate a Maurelli

For the multiplication of the ventricosum Maurelli we refer you to our expanded encyclopedia article in which everything is explained.

Why does a banana plant get yellow leaves?

It may be that the Maurelli does not get enough water during the growing season, but it is also a natural thing that leaves become barren. Some leaves have simply reached their age and then die off. The leaves can be removed with scissors, or by hand.

Are Maurelli's poisonous to cats / dogs?

The Maurelli is non-toxic, and can therefore be placed in an environment with cats / dogs.

Where to buy an Ensete ventricosum 'Maurelli'?

We have a very simple answer to this question. Teeninga Palmen is a specialist in hardy Mediterranean plants and trees, and offers them for the lowest price and the highest quality, so the choice is easy!

Our plant sizes are determined by measuring the smallest plants up until the largest in a field with hundreds of plants. Because a plant is a natural product, it's possible a plant is a little smaller than the mentioned minimum size.

This deviation is 10cm maximum. In our guidelines we keep a margin of max. 10cm regarding the minimum size.

Note: when you order a plant that doesn't stay green in the winter, it's probably (when ordered during the winter months or the beginning spring season) smaller than the minimum size. This is not a problem in any case, because the plant will grow new branches or leaves and the minimum height will be reached within a short period. Your order will have the right size within a short time.

Special transport is required for larger/heavier plants or objects. This transport costs 29,95 (free for orders above 300). The benefit of this transport is that more products can be selected without getting additional transport costs. The delivery time of this transport type usually is within 1 workday. Howiever, it can take 1 or more days in some cases. If you're not at home when the driver arrives, the order will be placed in front of your door.
