Musa Tropicana, or Banana Plant, is a dwarf banana species suitable for indoor living spaces. Its foliage grows symmetrically with paddle-shaped large green leaves, adding a tropical vibe to your home and office.
Musa Tropicana is compact and does not take much space. It can grow up to 4 feet in height indoors.
Banana Tree is easy to care for and can filter airborne toxins, making it an ideal houseplant.
Musa Tropicana grows best under bright indirect sunlight, but it can adapt to medium light conditions. It is ideal to give this plant a few hours of sunlight a day. Banana Tree tolerates some direct sunlight, but scorching sun might burn its leaves.
This plant has a medium watering need. Check the soil twice per week and only water when the top 2" of the soil is dry to the touch. Drain well after each watering to prevent root rot. Water less in the winter.
The best soil for this plant is well-drained, rocky potting soil.
This plant loves warm, humid environments and grows best in temperatures between 75°F-85°F. It will stop growing when the temperature falls below 55°F. This plant needs a high humidity level (at least 50%)so mist this plant frequently and use a humidifier when the room environment is dry.
This plant should be fertilized twice a month during the growing season (spring/summer) with diluted houseplant fertilizer.

When you purchase online, your plants have to go through lots of stress while traveling so they may need a few days to adjust to their new environment and thrive. If your plant does not perk back up after a few days of care, let us know and we will send replacements free of charge. Remember that we always try our best to accommodate you.
It’s advised that you should repot the plant as soon as you get it. After repotting, your new houseplant will most likely struggle with transplant shock. It may appear droopy, faded, or have a slower growth rate than usual during this time. This is completely normal, and it’s also normal for transplant shock to hit especially hard after repotting a brand-new houseplant. To make sure your plant has plenty of time to adjust to its new surroundings, wait a day after potting and water your plant. Make sure any excess water drains completely from the pot afterward. Monitor your soil’s moisture levels daily to start creating a watering routine. To help perk up your new houseplant, we recommend adding a little water-soluble fertilizer, compost, or sugar water to your soil to boost its nutrients and help it grow.
