Banana Plant 'Tropicana'
This super dwarf banana plant is a hybrid of the extremely popular 'Dwarf Cavendish'. With its paddle-shaped leaves and slight banana scent, the Banana Plant will add a tropical vibe to your home. This hybrid variety is relatively compact and will grow up to about three to four feet tall.
Height is measured from the bottom of the plastic nursery pot (please allow a +/-10% variance). Diameter is the nursery pot diameter, so to get a pot that fits, the pot diameter should be bigger.

About Banana Plant 'Tropicana'
The Cavendish variety of Banana Plant accounts for over half of global banana production. Incredibly, the Cavendish banana is said to have originally been grown by the head gardener of the stately home, Chatsworth House, in the UK before being distributed across the world.
Banana plants are native to southeast Asia and are now naturalised in tropical regions across the world. Banana plants are part of the Musa genus which includes bananas and plantains, with over 70 known species. Musa creates offshoots or pups which grow from the base of the banana plant and can be propagated through division.
Banana plants like many other tropical plants need as much warmth, humidity and light as they can get. Warm bathrooms or kitchens make an ideal location.
Did you know?
In botanical terms, banana plants are herbaceous plants or herbs because they lack woody stems like a tree. Instead, they have succulent stems. Banana plants are actually related to ginger.
This plant is non-toxic so although not advised should pose no harm if accidentally chewed or eaten by your furry friends.
