Water: The Banana Plant is native to the tropics and rainforests, banana trees thrive in plenty of water and moisture. New planting will need daily wateringfor about 2 weeks. Once established, your plant will only need water during sweltering and dry weather. For indoor plants or winter weather, ensure that you water sparingly to maintain evenly moist soil. Take care not to overwater them or let the soil dry out between waterings. 


Light: Banana trees grow best under the full sun. Choose a spot that gets the most sunlight or at least 6 hours of direct sunlight for most days. Some banana varieties can scorch easily, so you need to provide partial shade.


Temperature/Humidity: Banana trees thrive in wqarm humid climates and are very cold-resistant. Though they are hardy plants, they do not appreciateextreme temperatures, preferring consistent temperatures between 75-95 degrees. Cold, dry conditions often promote quick dieback. Increase humidity levels by misting the leaves daily. Planting them close together in groups will help preserve moisture in their leaves.

  • Toxicity:The banana plant is not toxic to humans or pets. In fact, the flowers and fruit are ediblein many regions worldwide. Many consider this plant a safe alternative , especially for households with pets.

    Pruning: Before it fruits, prune your banana tree to maintain only one mainstem. About 6-8 months after planting, leave a small shoot at the base of the stem. This sucker will replace the main stem during the following growing season. Once you harvest the fruit, you can cut back the main stem to about two and a half feet, leaving the sucker intact.

    Soil: Plant your bananas in deep, slightly acidic soil rich in organic matter. You want to ensure the soil is well-draining, preferably loamy soil. They do not appreciate too much salt, so a soil test to check for salt content will benefit your plant.
