|ENSETE MAURELII |
MEDIUM SIZE MATURE WITH RED LEAVES
The Red Banana is an ideal landscape item for
color and beauty. They have a definite and prominent red color to
the leaf stems, trunk and backs of the leaves. The dorsal leaf
also shows a flush of red. Mature size is about twelve feet or a
bit more or less. Basal diameter at maturity is 12 to 16 inches.
Be aware they are fast growing but only last five or six years before
flowering and dying. But, if you replace the plant, they quckly
replace the last one. They do not bear fruit, like full sun and
are cold tolerant down to about a freeze. If you want bananas, get
an edible fruiting Banana which we also carry. The last photo is

GREAT PALM TREES FOR SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
|For growers |
here on the West Coast, there are black plastic containers that most of us use
on our plants. Surprisingly, there are differences between
the pots used
on the West Coast and East Coast of the U.S. Here we refer to most
containers by “gallon size” On the East Coast pots are referred to
“diameter in inches”. So,
back East you might find a plant in a “14 inch pot”. Here is might be
called a “15 gallon pot”. If you visit our price
and availability catalog,
plants are shown by their pot size. I’m hoping that this Blog post this morning will help clarify
what individual pots look like.
|CONTAINER SIZE||PHOTO EMPTY |
|PHOTO OF |
| BAND SIZE CONTAINER |
This pot is 3 x 3 x 9 inches, square in shape. It is used for
seedling plants. For most growers, it has replaced the one gallon pot.
It is a bit deeper and easier to place in carrying trays. It also
conserves space on benches because these can be placed close together.
You can get a pretty nice plant in a band container, sometimes up to 30
| ONE GALLON POT |
This is a very common pot used, especially by flower growers
and those producing small shrubs. It’s a typical first step after
germinating a seedling. We prefer using the band containers above as
they conserve table and bench space more efficiently and are deeper.
Diameter of this pot is six inches but it’s only about seven inches
| TWO GALLON POT |
This pot is 7 to 8 inches wide and about 8 inches deep. It is a nice
size to move a band plant into. But, it is not particularly deep, so
you have to make sure the roots fit into the container. This pot will
produce an average plant that is about 2 feet tall. We grow a lot of
palms in these pots.
| FIVE GALLON POT |
This pot is 10 inches wide and about 10 inches deep. It produces a
plant that is one of the most common sized palms that we sell. It is
popular because it’s not too heavy to lift and plants are typically
three to five feet tall, depending on the species.
| SEVEN GALLON POT |
We really like this container because it produces a good sized plant but
isn’t as heavy to carry as a 15g. But, for some manufacturing reason,
this pot costs twice as much as a 15g. Therefore, most growers aren’t
buying this sized pot very much nowadays. It is 12 inches wide, and
about 12 inches deep.
| FIFTEEN GALLON POT |
This is the most popular sized purchased by people who want a landscape
or near-landscape ready size of plant. This container typically
supports a palm from four to eight feet size. Weight of this size of
container with soil and plant is usually sixty to ninety pounds. It’s
size is 15 to 16 inches wide and 16 inches deep. Note how this size pot
usually has a nice carrying lip at the top of the pot.
| TWENTY/TWENTY-FIVE GALLON POTS |
This is the next size up from a 15g. These pots are typically about 18
to 20 inches wide and 16 to 18 inches deep. They weight anywhere from
125 to 150 pounds with their soil. They can produce a plant larger than
the 15g, typically 8 to 10 feet. They usually have a flat lip on the top
as shown. The pot shown here is actually a 25g pot. 20 g are a bit
| 24 INCH BOX CONTAINER |
This box is 24 inches wide, square in shape and about 22 to 24 inches
deep. The weight of this container depends on the mix, but is anywhere
from 175 to 300 pounds (this heavier weight is if one is using a very
heavy soil). It takes two men to lift one of these. We prefer plastic
boxes as shown here, but they are much more expensive than wooden box.
They last a very long time.
