Remove the plant from the nursery pot and place it in the decorative pot. Then fill the decorative pot with earth. This gives the plant the space it needs to grow well. Just remember to water and enjoy! Sufficient light is needed to ensure good growth. So place the plant in a bright spot out of direct sunlight. Bananas thrive in well-drained soil. The soil should be kept damp. It's best to give the tree extra water during dry spells. The banana plant comes in the Elho greenville decorative pot.

Musa basjoo is a special foliage plant with a tropical charisma. Plant the banana plant as soon as possible, after delivery, in a large flower pot or patio pot with holes in the base. Preferably, use tub plant compost and add some granulated cow manure granules. Put some compost into the pot and set the Musa basjoo root ball at the right depth. Fill with compost, press firmly and water immediately after planting. Place the pot in a sheltered, warm, light spot, but do protect the leaves from intense sun.
The compost around the roots should always be kept rather moist, so it is important to water regularly. However, Musa basjoo detests ‘wet feet’, so always provide adequate drainage. From spring until autumn regularly add plant food when watering. The plant enjoys a lot of heat.
Musa basjoo comes originally from Japan and can tolerate the cold rather well. In our climate this exotic plant can be easily be cultivated. New shoots can grow from the base of the banana plant, which will give you even more of the lovely banana leaves. Plant in the garden and create a tropical appearance.
