I started with 3 banana plants now I have hundreds. I have a big property and they are good for shade (only). Unfortunately, they are the banana plants that produce the bananas that don't taste good. they taste like wax! They also are not that attractive in my opinion.

My question is how to get the pups from resprouting. I will cut the pups off and in DAYS they will grow back! I've read that you can put kerosene on the pups but I don't want to kill the main plant. Please advise.

I would also love to know the name of the plants I have. ty!
