WHAT IS A PLANTAIN SUCKER?
* A sucker is a lateral shoot that develops from the rhizome and usually emerges close to the parent plant.
* The offered products are high-quality suckers that produce healthy fruits and conversely make cultivation a profitable one for farmers.
* Available suckers include banana, plantain, and pineapple suckers.
* We sell in large quantities and we will be able to supply as much as you demand.
CONSIDERATIONS BEFORE PLANTING PLANTAIN SUCKERS
The planting density is influenced by:
* Size of the mature suckers (larger trees means lower planting density).
* Amount of maintenance you intend to do (higher planting density means higher maintenance, more pruning in particular).
* The soil fertility and if fertilizer will be applied every year.
Things needed for sucker planting
* Narrow digging bar
* Pruning shears or sharp scissors
* Container (optional)
* Potting mix (optional)
Do not plant suckers that are affected by any type of disease or pest problem.

I bought two of these suckers and got an extra one. They were delivered on time and in good condition. They are growing now even though we could not plant them right away since we hid them on top of the trellis from our dogs for over a week. Our dogs have ripped apart our previous banana plants and we did not want a repeat of that. They are doing well so far. Thank you Nature Touch Farms.
