Banana plant

Plant arrived healthy and is showing new growth. Better than expected, would by again and would recommend.

Robust plants!

The 5 banana plants were all larger than expected, and made an instant impact in my tank. The coarse texture is great contrast to the finer textured plants. If you have “moonlight” LEDs the leaves have an amazing reflective quality!

Banana Plants

Plants arrived very well packaged, in excellent condition.

They went directly into my tanks and shaved adapted well. They are starting to take root, leaves and plants are staying green with no "melting" like you see with so many plants.

Will buy again!

Banana Bread it ain't.

What can be said plant hasn't died and it's still green. Let you know in a couple of weeks and yes the roots do look like a hand of bananas.
