My wife like Bananas. I like elephant ears, so a decent compromise. Just in time for mothers day. :)

Got to try it! In California I see other have them and since I have successfully over wintered my peppers(one is 3 years old!) and tomato plants, this could work.

Can a banana tree be grown in a house in a container?
Fred S on Mar 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely as long as it receives plenty of light if kept indoors. There are several varieties that will stay very small in a container. Look for varieties that are dwarves. Dwarf Cavendish do very well in containers. If you plan on sticking the container outdoors in the summer, just be sure to give it plety of water. Bananas are heavy drinkers and dry out fast.
Has anyone had any bananas grow on their trees?
Allen S on Feb 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not yet but I am super happy with the plant. It is tall and beautiful and is doing
very well. Hopefully I will get some bananas from it.
Do they develope babies?
Tessie R on Jan 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes they do. You can separate them and replant them as they being to grow.
Can this variety of banana tree grow we'll in Colorado if I keep it indoors?
Debbie W on Jan 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it certainly can. A couple of caveats: the tree will do best if moved outdoors for the summer after daytime temps are in the 70s. As Colorado air can be very dry, make sure the tree stays evenly moist, indoors and out. Then bring it back it when nightime temps start to dip into the low 60s.

A very striking indoor plant
I live in Washington, DC, so I was concerned that my banana plant, which lives indoors by a window, wouldn't have enough warmth and sunlight. But the plant is doing great. In 3 years, it has gone from a tiny sapling to a 4 foot tall behemoth, with each leaf about 2 feet in lengths. All my visitors comment on how strikingly love it is. It drinks quite a bit of water, but it otherwise very easy to care for.

Does well even in cold Minnesota
I was surprised by how quick this plant grew. I wish I would have originally planted it in a larger pot, as It only took a few weeks until I was buying an upgraded one to accommodate it. It's beautiful and really brings a "tropical" feel to out house. I have not had any bananas yet, but I have had it less that 1 year. The leaves alone are cool to look at. Another thing I like is that it is not poisonous to dogs, so the plant is safe to be indoors if you have animals. It does need plenty of light, so if indoors make sure it has access to light during the day. Overall very satisfied with this purchase!

Love it!
Tho it was difficult to keep it alive over the winter, we did. It takes commitment to move in and out of the house. The first year he grew about 3 1/2 foot so far this year it's grown another 6 to 8 inches. It's just unusual and something fun to watch grow we're enjoying it

Pool Addition
We recently purchased several plants for use on our deck near the pool, i.e., a Cavendish Banana Potted Kit and it is doing great. We would recommend these plants for use in small places. It just gives you the "island" feel.

Great Plant
My banana has grown quickly and is in great shape. I keep it indoors in the winter. I have not gotten any bananas yet but I am sure it is a matter of time. I would recommend this plant to anyone who enjoys growing things.

Love it
It has doubled in size in the last year and loves to be outside for the summer. I was afraid it would get too much water but it has thrived on it.
