Your goal is to take some roots along with the pup so you may need to cut into the mother plant in order to get some roots. Once the pup is taken, plant it in a sunny spot. I can't give you a guideline as to when to expect fruit. Bananas fruit once they have developed a certain number of leaves, depending on variety - usually (12-20). Best wishes with your banana plants.
