Banana plants like a light spot and lots of water. The soil can always be quite moist, so water the plant regularly. A banana likes a lot of heat 13 °C is the minimum temperature. In winter the plant can be kept a little cooler and therefore water a little less. The banana is a separate container plant and can be placed outside on your terrace in the summer, provided it is not too cold. The banana cannot tolerate frost, so bring the plant indoors on time. Trim old, unsightly leaves to encourage new leaf growth. Banana leaf is very fragile. Small tears or damage in the leaf are common with this plant, but this is not harmful to the plant. The banana produces an average of 1 new leaf per week and a damaged leaf will quickly be replaced by a new leaf.
