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.

Banana Plant

I am very pleased with the size of plant I received. I am more shocked to have gotten a free plant as well. I will be buying more plants from here in the future. Thank you
