Planting & Care

Bananas require a sheltered jungle environment to grow well. This means a tropical or warm subtropical climate with consistent temperatures of 78-86°F. They need good light, very rich soil, high humidity and lots of consistent water and fertilizer. Bananas also need shelter from wind, and do best when planted in blocks or clumps of plants. It takes about 9 months for a banana tree to produce a bunch of bananas. Bananas can be planted in large containers and brought indoors in cooler climates.
