Incredibly Resilient Plant
Reviewed By: Sonia (Sacramento, CA)
I've had my banana tree plant for close to two years now. As with all of my Gurneys purchases, I am so impressed with this plant. The plant was doing great until last winter when I failed to bring it inside, and it froze, so I thought that was the end of a plant I'd tended to for a year and a half. I left the stump in the pot (indoors) and to my amazement, about a month later, a new shoot had sprouted. Literally in three months, the plant went from being a poor neglected brown stump to a vibrant green multi-leaved plant about a foot tall. It's growing back so fast. Anytime I purchase from other stores, the story is usually the opposite; I take care of a plant and it dies. With Gurneys plants, even if I neglect to tend to them, they survive. I had the same thing happen with some strawberry plants from Gurneys that kept producing so many strawberries year after year (and I had thought you had to replant new strawberries every year). If you buy from Gurneys, you're getting a very healthy product.

The 1 1/2 foot plant was received promptly. It had three leaves upon arrival, two of which I cut off due to poor condition.

Eight days later, another leaf appeared. A week later, another leaf. And another...

Real conversation starter

Ordered two, since I thought "dwarf" would mean small. It definitely did not work out that way. Thought they were dead when I opened the box, but in one season they have become magnificent five foot plants sporting three foot leaves. Luckily, I have two greenhouses so each can have their own home for the winter. They have both produced little plantlets at their bases, so I assume I now own a banana plantation. Love these plants.
