Banana Plant, aka Musa Tropicana, is a great option for those with limited space, as they never grow taller than 2 meters, which is still a rare height to achieve indoors. Their broad, smooth, velvety leaves are a beautiful, soft green with some maroon spotting. They rarely bear fruit indoors but their stunning foliage makes up for this.

The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.

As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.

Pro tips

The leaves are very delicate, ripping easily, so be very careful when handling your Banana plant and make sure it is in a sheltered location if outdoors. Remember that these plants originate in the tropics, so they love as much moisture in the air as possible, as well as warm temperatures. As your plant grows, it may produce offshoots, or babies, when those pups grow and develop a root system of their own – you can go ahead and divide them from the mother plant.

Care Guide

How to take care of Banana Plant

They enjoy some direct sun, but they'll also do well in bright, indirect light. It is best to place this plant somewhere where it will receive some nice morning sun, or a couple of hours of afternoon sun, and then indirect light the rest of the day.

They will thrive in bright light, but also can tolerate medium light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. They can be placed anywhere between the middle of the room and the window. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

They need to be watered when the top half of the soil is dry to the touch. That usually takes about 1 week in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but it's always safer to underwater or give the soil a check before you water again. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

They like a high humidity environment, give them a mist daily or as often as possible. Alternatively, you can put them around a humidifier. Although they won't die if they don't receive enough humidity, their leaves may have some dry, crunchy, or yellow edges.

You can feel comfortable having this plant around your home in the potential case where your pet feels like nibbling on it. However, we typically recommend keeping your pets from eating any of your houseplants.
