Pino,
I grow my musella lasiocarpa in a big clay pot. They grow well and flower often.
I bought a plant and it produce 20+ suckers in that pot.
Very messy. I finally cleaned them out and leave a big plant. If you feed them heavily, they do really well for you.
I do mean HEAVILY. I put a big bunch of goat pellet every week (used to do it until i got tired now).

About 1.5' to 2'. Musa will become really messey after they grows suckers.

Foliage of this musa are treated strictly as ornamentals, these types of bananas are grown for their foliage, not for fruit. Bananas can grow to 15 feet tall and can be quite dramatic with their large leaves. Use bananas in large containers or as specimen plants in landscape beds.
