- 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.
So initially after adding this plant to my tank I was a bit worried due to a few of the individual "bananas" of the tubers turning blackish, but then all the sudden a week later it started sprouting new stems left and right every other day it seemed like. The craziest was a stem that went from barely visible to growing all the way to the surface of my 36 gallon along with a lily pad emerging in not even a week. Fastest growth I've had from any plant even over myaca fluvitalis.
All the plants I’ve ordered have been healthy and arrived quickly and in good shape
