 Add a funky little bunch of bananas to your aquascape! I think they'd look really cool on a piece of slate or hanging off some driftwood.

An odd little curiosity, Banana Lilies (Nymphoides aquatica) are very similar to Taiwan lily plants-- and are just as low maintenance!

Banana plants should not be buried, just allow them to rest lightly on your substrate. They'll soon anchor themselves in, and sprout long lily leaves that reach up to the surface. Great betta plant!

Growing requirements:

  • 65-80 Degrees Fahrenheit
  • Ph 6-8
  • Lower to medium light intensity.
  • Grows quickly
  • Co2 not necessary
  • Trim leaves regularly so they don't block out too much light!

As I like to keep real ecosystems in my aquariums, there's always the possibility of harmless snail or dwarf shrimp hitchhikers!

Cassandra's Notes:

So these lilies are the type that are not especially long-lived. No worries though!

Remember those leaves that you pruned so that they wouldn't block out all the light to your other plants? Those can be propagated to grow new banana plants! I just let mine float in another tank, and watch the leaves sprout roots at the cut stem point.

Good plant and growing well !

Banana plants came in great condition and well packed. Growing in the tank very well and it just sprouted a new larger leaf.

Nice plants!

Ordered two and they both arrived healthy and were a good size. I’ve ordered banana lilies in the past from other sellers and they were always tiny. These were huge by comparison!

a few leaves were dead but after some fertilizer it a few more quickly grew to replace them and it's a nice addition to my tank

Beautiful!!

Came expertly packaged and labeled. Beautiful healthy plant that is already growing and it's only been one week since it arrived. Definitely recommend both plant and seller.
