Product Description

Musa 'Tropicana' is a dwarf form of banana plant that can easily be kept as an indoor house plant due to its compact, yet fast-growing nature, bringing a lush, tropical feel to your home.

The perfect miniature tree, 'Tropicana' has a symmetrical growth habit and a slightly wavy edge to its huge leaves. Although it is unlikely to produce fruit in the UK, it will grow into a handsome specimen indeed!

A conservatory is an ideal place to grow your Musa, as it will provide humidity, brightness and plenty of room to grow - just what this plant desires in order to thrive. Your banana can also be grown outside during the summer in a sheltered location to prevent wind damage to the paddle-shaped leaves and then brought back into the house when cold weather threatens.

As well as looking gorgeous, your Banana is also a useful houseguest, as according to a NASA study they will help keep the air in your home clean by filtering out pollutants and improving the oxygen content.

Supplied as an established plant in a 12cm pot, plants will reach approx 1-2m high.

Note The decorative pot in images is for display purposes only and is not supplied.

Plant Information

Top Tips

Bananas are thirsty plants, so you will need to water regularly to keep the leaves happy.

Care Guide

  • Musa grow best in bright, indirect light, but will tolerate partial shade and some direct sun (although young leaves can scorch if left too long).
  • Water regularly.
  • If placing your banana tree outdoors during the summer, allow it to gradually acclimatise to bright sunshine as this can otherwise scorch the leaves.
  • Feed with a balanced liquid fertiliser every few weeks during the growing season.
