Banana Tree - Perfect Conditions

Posted by steffic (My Page) on

Hi everyone! What are the perfect conditions for planting a banana tree? And also, can I plant one in my flat? As in, inside? Or do you think that is a recipe for disaster? I have grown many things indoors already, I find it easier to regulate the temperature for example. But I'm completely new to banana trees!

Not knowing where you live, it is hard to say. Bananas like heat and water. Plenty of both. Frost and cold are not your friends. With that I would plant in Spring when it is warm. Indoors is pot luck but as a first timer I would wait til spring. Good luck.

RE: Banana Tree - Perfect Conditions

yes you can grow bananas indoors, they may take a few years to fruit. grow a dwarf variety in a 10 gallon container. there are even super dwarf cultivars like truly tiny and little prince. just put them in the sunniest spot and keep them on the moist side.
