Get to Know Banana Tree Plant!


Banana tree plants have fleshy, upright stalks from which large, oblong, bright green leaves grow. Showy flowers appear typically in the spring, giving way to the fleshy, elongated, green or yellow fruit.


Banana trees are tropical and originate in rainforests, so they need a lot of water and plenty of moisture in the air. Water regularly to make sure the soil stays evenly moist but not soggy. Avoid over watering as it can cause root rot.


Banana tree plants prefer to grow in full sun, meaning at least six hours of direct sunlight on most days.


Yes! This plant is non-toxic to pets if ingested.

Sad Plant (is your plant dying?)

YELLOW LEAVES: Banana tree leaves that are turning yellow and dying indicate that the tree is not getting the nutrients it needs. Inadequate fertilization, poor-draining soil, overwatering and fungal infection are some of the common reasons a banana tree.

The best way to properly balance soil nutrients is to conduct a soil test and only fertilize with the nutrients shown to be lacking. If the soil test shows that no deficiency exists, the soil pH may need adjusting, the soil may be slow to drain, or the tree may be overwatered. Too much water prevents the roots from harvesting nutrients from the soil.

A banana tree infected with fusarium wilt will — as the name implies — looks wilted due to the lack of water reaching its leaves. The yellowing will progress from the oldest to newest leaves.
Unfortunately, there is no known cure for fusarium wilt. The best way to address this soil-borne disease is to plant resistant banana tree cultivars. Contact your local extension office to have your soil tested to diagnose fusarium wilt.
