I have taken care of this banana plant since it’s arival it looks wonderful now but it was in bad shape when I got it but I still don’t know why the leafs on it are not a nice sold green and have a mixture of brown and green. Fast shipping but I really wish the plant came looking nice and not brown and green and cuts on it.
This plant is great!!! Mine hover about 1 1/2" inches above the substrate anchored by a tap root. They have spread 1 to 2 inch leaves all over the top of the tank.
had it for 2 weeks and it started to rot from the bottom, had it sitting on top of the substrate the whole time so I had to take it out, just got a bad one I guess
Plants arrived healthy and in great shape. After about a month, the leaves are 3x larger, and the plants have three inch roots. I am so satisfied! My picture doesn’t do the plants justice.
Absolutely love this plant all came in healthy.
I ordered this plant a few weeks ago and its doing great. It came with about three leaves. One has faded away and a new one is starting to form. Looks great in the tank. Would definitely buy another. Shipping was fast.
Plant arrived packaged very well. It has been thriving in my aquarium in the 2 weeks since I received it. I will be ordering more, and keeping my fingers crossed for some snail hitchhikers with the next bunch!
It's a nice plant that grows big leaves so it provides nice shadow for my shrimps. In 3 weeks, it melted back the 2 leaves it came with and threw out 3 big leaves.
I took a couple months to write this review to ensure that everything was as perfect as it was from the start.
I purchased two of these little guys, each one for a different tank. One went in a medium lit tank and is absolutely thriving. The other is in a tank with a stock LED hood (cheapy stuff).
Medium light tank - Banana plant is thriving and the leaves are big and lush. Good color. Although I have not had one decide to reach the top.
Very low light tank - Banana plant is producing roots and leaves but leaves tend to die off a little faster and are a much darker color. Very beautiful but I feel like the plant is working harder than it should.
Overall I received the plants in great condition, each one had several leaves already and they didn't melt once I added to the tank. It did take each one a few weeks before really starting to invest in some roots and start taking off.
Below are some pictures! Enjoy. As always, Aquarium Co-op cares for their customers and they are only ever going to send/sell you something they would be happy to use themselves or are already using.
