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.

Wij raden altijd aan om een gekochte plant direct te verpotten naar een grotere pot, omdat de potten die verkocht worden vaak compleet doorgeworteld zijn. Ook is dat beter voor het vasthouden van vocht in de grond.

Meestal is de plant die u ontvangt nabij de minimummaat. De hoogte van de plant is altijd incl. de pothoogte. De plantgrootte is afhankelijk van de varierende leverantie aan ons en hoe lang de plant in onze voorraad heeft gestaan. Lees meer bij het groene vraagtekentje hierboven.

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 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.

We selected these pots specially for this plant

Plant pots that are up to 4cm wider than the clod
Plant pots that are between 4 - 8cm wider than the clod
Plant pots that are between 8 - 20cm wider than the clod

Onze plantmaten worden bepaald door de kleinste plant te meten tot de grootste, in een veld met honderden planten. Omdat een plant een natuurlijk product is, kan het voorkomen dat de plant iets kleiner uitvalt dan de aangegeven minimale maat.

Deze afwijking is maximaal 10cm. Wij hanteren in onze richtlijnen ook deze speling van max. 10cm op de minimale maat aanduiding.

Let ook op: indien u een boom bestelt die in de winter geen blad heeft, is hij waarschijnlijk (wanneer besteld in de wintermaanden, of begin voorjaar) kleiner dan de minimale hoogte. Dit is in alle gevallen eigenlijk geen enkel probleem. Zodra de plant begint met het groeien van uitlopers, zal hij de aangegeven hoogte zeer snel bereiken. Uw aankoop heeft dus de juiste maat binnen korte tijd.

Speciaal transport is nodig voor grotere/zwaardere planten of objecten. Dit transport kost € 29,95 (gratis voor bestellingen vanaf € 300). Het voordeel van dit transport is echter wel dat er veel meer producten geselecteerd kunnen worden zonder dat er nog meer extra transportkosten gerekend moeten worden. Natuurlijk, om misbruik te voorkomen, zit hier wel een grens op. De levertijd van dit transport is meestal binnen 1 werkdag maar het kan 1 of meer dagen langer duren. Als u niet thuis bent wanneer de chauffeur komt, wordt de bestelling voor de deur geplaatst.
