Ensete ventricosum (giant form)

For sale by Heather R

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

This is the giant variety of E. ventricosum, I grew it from seed from jungleseeds.co.uk. Can be outside in summer, if you prune and bring it indoors for the winter. It is around 6 months old now, to give an idea of growth rate. I also have smaller plants to swap.
