Just found your site! Very impressed with your demeanor, cleanliness of your greenhouse and apparent quality of your plants that I viewed on unboxing videos. I've had Banana plants and absolutely luv them! Subscribed and will place order when setting up new tank in next few weeks.

I added a single one today before I even saw this video. I have two South American Cichlids, Angelfish. A Silver and an Orange Blushing. They have not bothered it at all but did look at it when I added it.

Que alguien me traduzca la información más importante :'v
Juansho - 4 years ago
David Hdez Wong creo que lo mas importante y es como ponerla en el acuario, dice que la puedes dejar flotando y ella sola sacara unas raíces muy largas con las que se agarrar al sustrato, pero quedo algo feito y le va a tomar algo de tiempo para que eso suceda, y la otra opción es que entierres muy muy poco un pedacito de los platanitos, así como se ve en el vídeo, y que es mas o menos lo mismo que las alubias, no se puede enterrar el rizoma ya que pues se pudre, pasa algo similar con esta planta si se entierra de mas

found some information on this plant. Really interesting stuff, and also love the way it looks like a lily or lotus.

Banana Plant, also known as the Big Floating Heart, is an interesting and unique looking Rosette Plant. It has banana-shaped roots that remain partially unplanted, and store the nutrients for the rest of the plant. The only member of its genus to be used as an aquarium plant because it is the hardiest, and most tolerant of deep water and low light. It is an amphibious plant and will grow either fully, or partially submerged.

The banana-shaped roots of this plant should be planted no more than 1/4 of their length. Plant them by gently pressing them into the substrate. The Banana Plant should be provided with a minimum of 2 watts per gallon of light within the spectrum of 5000 to 7000K. The ideal water conditions for best results are a temperature of 68°-82°F, an alkalinity of 3 - 6 dKH and a pH of 6.0-7.2.

Propagation occurs when adventitious plants are formed and firmly pressed into damp ground or the aquarium substrate. Fully formed leaves may also be pressed into substrate to form new plants. Use Banana Plants as foreground plants and plant them singly for best results and for the most attractive look.

Mine grows so fast and I can't wait for the Lily's. For those wondering the roots have to establish very deep and long before it produces a runner to the surface.

Is the banana plant sensitive to flourish excel?
Brian Gonzalez
Brian Gonzalez - 4 years ago
I've heard the same. no liquid ferts should be used on plants. most folks prefer DIY foot tabs
JacobsAquarium - 4 years ago
Its strange, I've actually heard allot of negative things about flourish excel from my customers. Many have told me Jungle Val, Java Moss, Rotala and many other plants have experienced negative side effects from excel. Mostly the plants melt entirely. I really don't recommend it. However, in regards to Banana Plants, I'm not entirely sure. Thanks for watching my friend.

I found this plant to be very fast growing. I bought a few a month ago and it grew fast. I bought a couple more today because I wanted to put them in all of my tanks. I thought it look like a banana too it was so intresting so my mom was like we should get some. My fish love it its great.

Do you, or any1, know what the lighting schedule cutoff for floaters and submersed leaves are? i.e. 12+ hrs for floaters, <12 hrs for submersed

It does better tied to driftwood rather than planting them in the substrate. It's roots will grow down towards the substrate but it leaves the banana thingies exposed to the light. I've got a couple on driftwood towards the top and have the roots growing down through a skull ornament and into the substrate. It looks really cool. It has two sorts of leaves. The lily pad ones at the surface, which makes the aquarium look pond like and then there are small underwater leaves that just stay underwater. I cut back the large lily pads if more than 3 or 4 are present to control the lack of light they cause to the rest of the tank. I grow mine and the rest of my plants without any CO2, ferts or anything and they are all doing great. I think they must be getting something from the fish and shrimp food. I have some with platys.

Once I have the money to spend, I want to make a trip to your nursery. You deserve the support. I live close as well. When I found out you lived in Corona I was excited haha. I live in Riverside but my girlfriend is from the crown circle city. Burger Basket and Pancake House are the besttttt!
mcclano - 4 years ago
Yeah I've got two of these in s 2ft and they definitely overtake the tank. Huge round lily pads that create too much shade. Wouldn't recommend for a small tank as you've already suggested.

A "bunch" of bananas is called a hand, and the individual bananas can be referred to as fingers. Unimportant, but just an fyi

Cool, hey Jacob, if you notice, in this video your "shadow" creates a crystal clear window to the bottom of that tank....maybe you could manipulate that effect somehow....anyways, hope you see what I'm talking about....
