- 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.
They really look like tiny green banannas!! I"ve had them almost 2 weeka and they are growing. Lots of roots coming out of them. I highly recommend this cute plant!!!
I got 2 of these. I can't wait to see how they look once the leaves come out! The rhizomes are so cute! Plant came just as expected. I knew the leaves wouldn't be great coming through shipping, and it was in the mid 30's the night before, but all the plants I got (6) were amazingly healthy looking! WILL DEFINITELY buy from them again!
Received a super healthy plant, in just a couple weeks it has fully rooted and grown several leaves. Looks great
I’ve had it for about a month now and it is starting to extend two big leaves it had and grow a few smaller ones. Several smaller “bananas” are appearing as well.
