Also know as (French plantain banana) (Musa sapientum)

You can create a stunning, large, and very tropical summer container display with a banana palm. Assuming you fertilize and water it often, the banana plant will grow extremely fast, filling in your bright corner or window in no time at all and providing a wonderful conversation piece. There is one drawback, however. Don’t expect to actually harvest any fruit. Unless you live in the tropics or have a large green house, your plant won't have time to flower and develop fruit. Instead, focus on growing banana plants for their beautiful and signature foliage.

Size: 200mm pot Large

Growing Conditions

  • Light: Banana trees grow in full sun or dappled light.
  • Water: During the growth season, banana palms are prolific water hogs. Water the plant generously, and as it grows, expect it to consume more water. You may find yourself watering a large banana plant daily.
  • Temperature: These plants thrive in warmer temperatures (up to 85 F). If you maintain the plant during winter, try to keep the temperature as warm as possible, with high ambient humidity.
  • Soil: Use a loose, well-drained, very rich potting mix.
  • Fertilizer: abundantly. Bananas are notoriously heavy feeders, so provide a steady supply of nutrients, in whatever form you're using.
We recommend the Australian Munash Organics soil food and foliage spray to keep you plants happy and healthy!

Grower's Tips

A healthy banana plant will have upright, very tropical leaves that unfurl from the central growing point. These are among the fastest growing plants in cultivation today, and a healthy banana plant will easily grow an inch a week or more, providing it has access to enough water, nutrients, and warmth. Banana palms will often reemerge from the rhizomes, so when the weather begins to cool, cut your indoor banana off at the soil level (their trunks are soft and easy to cut) and hopefully, new shoots will emerge for next season. Indoor bananas are wonderful when used in a large container collection and provide the very essence of the tropics.

Banana plant houseplant? That’s right. If you are not fortunate enough to live in a warm region where you can grow this tropical plant outdoors, then why not grow an indoor banana plant (Musa oriana) instead. With enough light and water, an indoor banana tree makes an excellent houseplant. A banana plant houseplant offers interesting foliage and white flowers emerging from purple buds. Keep in mind that while some banana tree varieties produce edible fruit, others do not—like that of Musa basjoo. Therefore, be sure to look into the type of indoor banana tree you have or want to ensure that it will accommodate your needs and vice versa. Below you will find some tips for taking care of a banana tree inside.

How to Grow Banana Inside Since an indoor banana tree can get rather large, you may opt for growing a dwarf variety. Even still, you’ll need a large container that is deep enough to accommodate all of its roots. It should also provide adequate drainage.
