An occasional spray of mist is my beauty secret to looking fabulous!


I can handle a little shade that's thrown my way, but I prefer to be in bright, indirect sunlight.


Keep it consistent, once the top two inches of soil are dry, water me so I keep looking my best.

Top tip

These leaves are very delicate, don't worry if you find some broken ones. The Banana Plant is fast-growing, so it will recover before you know it.

About Banana Plant

The Dwarf Banana Plant is a diva, it needs a little extra care but its unique leaves and almost transparent leaves make it worth it. This tall houseplant will grow to 3m, so it needs a space where it can grow. As a Canary Islands native, it likes it nice and warm (18-27°C) with bright, indirect sunlight.

While it may be fragile in some ways, this plucky Prickle Plant isn't in others. It can withstand temperatures as low as 10°C, and it's slightly shade-tolerant. In fact, if it has too much sun, its leaves can fold up. It needs regular watering and the occasional mist.

To make it even better, your Banana Plant is pet-friendly! Just be careful when moving it, as its leaves are rather fragile and can break easily. Luckily the Musa Dwarf Cavendish is fast-growing, so it will be looking in tip-top condition in no time. Sadly, while your Banana plant looks great, it is unlikely to produce anything edible in the UK due to our typically cold British weather.
