Banana Plants. 

I remember seeing Banana plants in the random 10 gallon "Planted Tank" at Meijer's as a kid. It's I plant I bought as a child and didn't kill.

YES- Banana Plants are EASY to keep.  The "Bananas" are actually roots, storage centers for the plant.....and yes- they look like bananas.  This makes this plant ideal for a beginner or KIDS aquarium!  They won't kill it and get to show off the "bananas" in their tank.

This plant can handle LOW LIGHT. 

On a Scale of 1 to 10. 1 being you could grow it in your toilet and 10 being, "You look at it wrong and it dies"   THIS PLANT IS A 1.5

(And the only reason for the .5 is that the top upper Lily leaf might melt back but it will grow back a new one!)

Nymphoides aquatica is  It is known variously as the banana plant, banana lily, and the big floatingheart.   The "Nymph" part of its name signifies it's "Lily" type leaf.

If you like this plant make sure and check out our Red Tiger Lotus or "Dwarf Lily" as it is equally easy with a NICE RED LEAF.  The two in the same tank would make a nice contrast.

Great product

Second order now and every plant has arrived perfect. Even received a freebie with my last order. All the plants are thriving. Highly recommend and will buy from them again.


This guy broke a little in shipping, but would have been amazing if he stayed intact.

Well worth the money!

Over 2 years now I've only ordered aquatic plants through Dustin. They are very reliable and they ship out fast. You're going to buy them buy them from him / them 😊 I have 8 small fish tanks full of their plants!!!


It's so cute! Also arrived healthy. Once I plopped it into the tank the leaves perked right up.
