I have a four foot (six months or so old) banana plant (sorry, I can't tell
which variety it as it was picked up at a plant sale) that has recently
created a offset that is now about six inches. Is it possible to seperate
the offset from the parent plant without doing harm to either the main
plant or the offset?   
I can tell you that it has leaves about thirty inchlong leaeves which are
being added at the rate of one every three weeks.
