Musa Dwarf Cavendish

Banana Plant


I am a dwarf variety of banana plant (although can still grow up to 3 meters tall) and I will make a real statement anywhere in the house.

My paddle shaped leaves have splashes of purple and maroon, but be careful as they are more delicate than you might expect!

How to look after me

  • Light


    I like bright indirect light and can deal with a direct sunshine outside of the afternoon peak.

  • Water


    I like a lot of water, but make sure I am in a pot with good drainage. My soil should be damp but not wet at all times.

  • Food


    Feed me once a month during Spring and Summer.

  • Climate


    Mist me regularly.

  • Other Maintentance


    My leaves can be quite delicate, and tear almost as easily as paper, but new leaves will grow quickly so don't worry too much!

Things to look out for

  • Look Out

    Yellow or brown edges / tips

    It's normal for leaves to become blemished and ripped from general knocking or even low humidity levels, but new leaves grow quickly so don't over-stress.
