Awesome plant!
Reviewed By: Karen (Ames, IA)
I don't really like bananas, but the plant looked so cool that I decided to buy it. It was small when I got it in May, now in October, it is over 18 inches tall and I have repotted it thrice from the pot it came in, and it is about ready for the next size up that is sitting in my living room. It is such a cool plant, I love it! Note: When it produces bananas, the main stalk will die, it is best to let two of the "baby" plants stay with the main plant so that they can take over, separating the rest is good so the plant has more energy to make bananas. Mine has one baby, it is so cute!

Dwarf Banana
Reviewed By: Cindy (Bridport, Vermont)
I received a dwarf banana and had to get it replaced due to shipping inadequacy. It has grown by leaps and bounds. It is over a year old, no blossoms yet, but it grew like very fast. There is yellowing of the leaves, not certain the remedy to green them up. It is about 3 feet tall as I potted it in a big pot with plenty of room and it lived out on my deck in the summer. It came inside when outside temps were down into the 40s and 30s. If it's dwarf, I'm glad I chose dwarf over a full sized one!

Banana plant
Reviewed By: Alice /zamora (Saint Paul, Mn)
Ordered banana plant 3 years ago, has grown to over 7 feet, has 3 babies and is wonderful. Still waiting for fruit but enjoying plant as is. Leave out all summer, bring in in late September and put out again in May. Love it.

What a great, fun plant. In 3 months it has grown over 2 feet. There's a baby growing on the side. It's beautiful and healthy.

Really disappointed

I bought this plant three years ago. The first summer after it was purchased it became infested with a number of pests - mites, maggots, etc. The initial plant eventually succumbed, but there were offshoots that have sprung up which have done nothing but keep increasing in number. I just read somewhere else that banana plants are actually giant herbs, and that the offshoots should be removed to ensure fruit production. Would have been nice to have better care instructions sent with the delivery of the plant.
