I once had 2 Ensete from Johor, but rotted as I wasn't careful with drainage :hammer:
Form is lovely.
I heard the SBG had 1 stolen from them, so now they used fence ard them.

hey there, are ensetes sensitive to poor drainage, too wet conditions. i know bananas are not as i had one growing into a huge tree in a puddle due to a leaky tap...

I simply plant them to the ground without too much precaution. But for the E. superbum I plant it on a slope. It seems ok to cope with the weather here. But I do notice that part shape (just morning sun) produce a better foliage color. Actually I germinate the ensete, so it should be more tolerant to the local weather.

By the way where you guys see Ensete in Johor?

p/s heard that you want to get rid of your Tapeino... Would like to get some (its underground roots) if you're willing to send it to me. Heee

yes, you're right, no design plan it seems; I also felt they were planted for the sake of being planted. See how well they do lor..

when i go by there, I;m always doing so in the evening, or I zoom by quite fast, so I don;t ID them! Probably ventricosum? Is that the post commonly available one?
