The Blood Banana Plant is an ornamental plant that offers interesting foliage with a dark red accent. A great source of colour and tropical flair and provides a great play of colour in your home.

Plant Size

Small: 4 inch standard nursery pot.

Light

Most types of bananas plants prefer to grow in full sun, meaning at least six hours of direct sunlight on most days. However, some varieties can scorch easily and will do better in partial shade.

Water

Banana trees are tropical and originate in rainforests, so they need a lot of water and plenty of moisture in the air. They do best when planted in groups fairly close together, as this helps to retain moisture in the leaves. Water regularly to make sure the soil stays evenly moist but not soggy. Avoid overwatering, which can cause root rot.

Plant Specific Care

Soil
These plants love organically rich, deep soil with good drainage and a slightly acidic soil pH. They typically have poor tolerance for salt in the soil.

Temperature and Humidity
These plants thrive in warm, humid conditions, but they don't like temperature extremes. Even the hardy, cold-tolerant banana tree species prefer consistent temperatures ranging between 75 and 95 degrees Fahrenheit. Cold temperatures and dry conditions can cause the plants to quickly die back. To raise humidity, mist the leaves daily.

Fertilizer
Banana trees are heavy feeders. Apply a balanced fertilizer on a regular basis throughout the growing season, following label instructions. Also, mix compost into the soil annually to raise the level of organic matter.

Pet-Friendly Plant
