  • 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.

This banana plant may come with a few small leaves. However, the leaves are delicate and it is common for them to be damaged in transit. More leaves will grow about a week to 10 days after being planted in an aquarium.

Banana plants do best if rested on top of substrate or buried to about 1/4 inch so the plant can send roots down into the substrate. If buried too deeply, the plant may rot and eventually die.

Snails and plecos are known to eat banana plants.
