: : I have a tropical plant that I inherited from my mother in law before she died. I think it is a rather common plant -- it was picked up at Lowes.
: : Thanks.
: I think that this is called a blood banana. I don't know how to propagate them off-hand, but I think you can split it somehow; go to google and type "propagate banana" to find an answer.
Hmm, no, that's not the plant. It's totally purple, and the leaves arent so broad. I think I'll just go to Lowes or some other garden store and look around to find one. :)
