#ProPlantTips for Care:

Banana tree care is super easy! Give them consistent moisture, regular fertilizer and a full sun location.

Water a bit less in winter when they’re not growing to avoid root rot and provide a very well-drained location that will not get soggy.

  • Full Sun
  • Well-Drained Enriched Soil
  • Regular Fertilizer
  • Requires Protection From Extreme Wind & Weather
