How to care for Banana
Banana needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.

Banana love being close to bright, sunny windows 😎.
Place it less than 1ft from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.
Banana does not tolerate low-light 🚫.
Select your region to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Banana in your home 🏡.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Banana after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
This plant has been on my wish list for a while and I finally got one! I recommend wiping the leaves every so often, however be careful and delicate with this plant as it scars quite easily on the leaves. I have placed this plant in the conservatory and found that it loves it there, it has just put out a new leaf and already it is rapidly growing another one!
It loves my grow light! I set it outside to acclimate it after the weather became warmer and didn’t realize it would get down into the 30s at night. It did just fine and now it’s been outside for two days and still doing well. I will be planting it into the ground soon where it will get full sun.
