- Unique Banana Shape
- Easy Care
- Grows Lily Pads
Banana plants have been a staple of the aquarium hobby for many years. They're loved for both their ease of care and visual impact. The banana plant gets its name because it's tubers (where nutrients are stored) are shaped like a bunch of bananas.
Once established, banana plants will send up wavy, green leaves under the surface while also sending tall shoots to the surface where it will produce lily pads. When this happens, check to make sure your other plants aren't being shaded out by the lily pads and trim if necessary.
Probably the easiest and coolest plant I've ever bought
I was quite disappointed I’ve orderd plants before from aquarium co op and this was the first to arrive in bad condition. It was filled with deterioration in the leaves and alge over the stems. Usually plants arrive in good health just this one didn’t
This is the easiest plant ever! I’ve only had it a few weeks! I laid it on the gravel and within a few days it sent up a lily pad. I’ve had new lily pads coming up every few days! Since this is my first banana plant, I have no idea what to expect, but I’m very happy with this plant!
This was my first purchase from Aquarium Co-Op and they did not disappoint. (FYI, I purchased Vallisneria, a Banana Plant, Java Fern and Pogostemon Stellatus Octopus.) The plants were excellent quality--much larger and healthier than anything I can find "in a tube" at one of the big box stores... and all for the same price. Quick turnaround on shipping and delivery as well.
The look great
