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.

Assorted aquarium plants

Plants were as I ordered, healthy, decent quality, promptly delivered & cold packed in case of hot temperatures. I highly recommend Dustin’s plants & will not order from others now, as I’m too picky to tolerate 2nd or 3rd class materials.

Beautiful and healthy!

Everything I’ve received from Dustin has been amazing, and this is no exception! Very healthy banana plant! Got for my kids’ tank and they love it! There ended up being 3-4 separate plants which was a very nice surprise!

Been looking at this for a while!

A fun little plant and something to get my smaller children engaged and talking about the tanks with me. Who wouldnt love mini fish bananas? Lol anyways after window shopping for a few weeks i pulled the trigger in a major way! I ordered 4 of these 1 for each tank! One of the bunches didnt have any leaves started yet so dustin’s team sent an extra making that 5 in the package(they are good for these types of things) ive ordered from here and the other guys each twice now and i gotta chuck the deuce to buce im sticking with dustin😁😁

Absolutely the cutest

I got it for my daughter and she loved it. Great option for any tank, probably will order couple for my tank just because they are so neat!

Best plants Iv found

Couldn’t ask for better plants and quicker service. Both times I placed an order it was here within 4 days. My plants look amazing after just 1 day of planting them. And the ones Iv had for a week now are beautifully filling out and growing for fast. I’m telling everyone I know and come across about you guys so you might get hit up soon. I’m sure you are with plants like these. Love you guys and will be ordering a lot more. I still have 2 tanks I want to plant up more. These are some b4 and after shots. That really do them no justice. There’s so many you can’t see till I take the rocks and sponge out. But I’m turbo cycling the tank rite now and my wood won’t sink. It’s been soaking for over a month now 😝
