Growing & Maintenance Tips for Ensete ventricosum 'Maurelii'
Ensete may be grown either directly in the ground or in containers. Plants survive best in organically rich, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun. Plants tolerate and often appreciate some part shade or light filtered sun in the heat of the day. Plants need consistently moist soils and do not allow to dry out. Fertilize plants regularly. Protect plants in areas void of strong winds which can severely damage the large leaves. For containers, use a well-drained potting soil mix. Keep container soils consistently moist but not wet.
