FINALLY :) got my hands on Ensete Hiniba :):):)

Post by Dave Brown » Sun Jul 17, 2011 10:38 pm

I've liked this Ensete since Lucien wrote about it back in 2007, but the only supply seems to have been from David Constantine in 2007 through Koba, Koba. David Constantine also introduced Ensete Montbeliadii, however to my knowledge Ensete Hiniba has never been available commercially since then. :roll:

BUT today I bought two icon_thumright icon_thumright icon_thumright Nice healthy plants raring to go icon_thumright

They are Ensete, not nanas, different plants. :wink: What distinguishes Hiniba from other Ensete is it is like a green version of Montbeliardii, unlike Maurelii and standard ventricosum.

The other major difference is these seem to be the only ones in western cultivation, so not a plant to stick in the garden and say "Oh it died in the winter" If we all did that, it's gone. :ahhh!:

Sorry, correction, should have said this batch, rather than just the two I have. The seller is a member, and may have a couple left to sell, but I'll leave it to them to confirm.

Really pleased for you Dave, it's obvious how excited you are to finally have this plant in your collection.

I look forward to seeing it grow, if anyone is going to get great results from such an uncommon Ensete it's you.

Keep us updated.

Agreed, looking forward to them growing. I'm considering asking Dave if he can overwinter all my precious plants this winter? :lol:

Does it require same conditions as other Ensetes? I mean not too hot. Cuz I have found Ensete Uganda which apparently grows better in hot and humid climates
Still looking for a huge Pseudopanax crassifolius...
