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.

Little rough

Got 4 when i ordered 3 so that was awesome. The heat pack came off the bag and the plants got pretty cold so im hoping they bounce back. They look a little rough but the plants normally look amazing from here so still 4 stars. I was really excited for these since it seems like forever since i had them so i hope they come back. Update- they didnt make it. Bummer. Still 3 stars cuz it was probably not a quality issue

Both banana plants are doing great even new leaves have started towards the top of the tank .Now about the light was wondering why we didn't get a dimmer switch,l bought an on/off switch but would REALLY like the opportunity to dim the light seven times.
