Historical Cultivation And Usage

As early as 1893, Baker noted that E. superbum was in common cultivation, and it was introduced into the Calcutta Botanical Gardens in the year 1800 (Baker, 1893). The plant dies down in the dry season and forms new leaves at the beginning of the monsoon season. This species can be propagated by seeds, but cannot produce vegetative side suckers naturally like other Ensete species. It has the capacity to withstand severe drought, and has therefore been used during famines in Ethiopia. It is excellent for outdoor cultivation, where weather permits, and grows well with liberal fertilization when established.
