What other plant parents say
I really liked this plant until it just decided to die one day. After looking into everything I couldn’t find any reason for it to be ‘wilting’ I had been watering it on the same schedule. Before it …
Buy a plant that is very full on top as plant can bald. Is a fast grower in the right conditions so the length will come. If bananas get crispy on top, you need to water more frequently but be carefu…
Absolutely obsessed with lil girlie!!! She has been putting out new bananas like nobodies business and is so beautiful to look at, even as a tiny baby. I can’t wait to see her in a few years as a hug…
not my favorite, i dropped it one time and it hasn’t grown as much ever since. i’m very sad about it, but it’s still alive and well!
Grows incredibly fast and very easy to care for. Very easy to water-propagate, grew roots in just 3 days
