Banana Plant (Nymphoides Aquatica) originates from Southern United States.  This is interesting plant and owes its unusual name due to its banana-shaped roots that are used by the plant to store nutrients.  These "roots" should not be buried in the substrate.  Instead, place the plant on the substrate and in time the plant will produce normal roots, attaching itself to the substrate.  Banana Plant produces beautiful heart-shaped leaves on short stalks.  In shallow aquariums, the leaves may reach the surface of the water and may grow as large as six inches.  The plant is easy to care, does not require strong light or a lot of fertilization.

    Slow grower

    Just rest them in the spot you want them and wait....for the roots to grow and anchor them in place. It's been about 3 weeks and the roots are just getting into the substrate.

    So it’s super cute first off. It came very healthy and is thriving easily. Growing daily starting immediately. Also the easiest thing to plant. it doesn’t float. just stick is gently into the substrate where you want it.

    Plants arrived healthy and each had a new leaf unfurl within two days of adding to the aquarium. Very pleased.

    I love these I’ve never seen them before and wasn’t sure if I’d like them when I got them and I love them. Will definitely be buying more.

    I’ve purchased banana plants before and these met all of my expectations! They were bright and full and were a great size to add to my tank!
