Banana ‘Super Dwarf Cavendish’ – A Logee’s Best Seller!
Anyone can grow bananas at home!
The Banana ‘Super Dwarf Cavendish’ (Musa acuminata) is an exciting strain of the Cavendish banana that is amazingly fast and easy-to-grow, and will actually produce fruit at a manageable height of just 3’ or less. The bananas will appear often after one year. Although the fruit is smaller than commercial bananas, they’re perfect for little hands or small appetites.
Banana plants do best in full sun. When actively growing, they need constant moisture. We recommend bringing the soil surface to slight dryness between waterings. When watering, thoroughly saturate soil until a little water runs out of the bottom of the pot. Musa are easy to grow and rewarding for the gardener due to their speed of growth, which can be optimized by warmth, water and fertilizer. They prefer humidity levels of 50% or higher, but will tolerate low levels with no harm.

I love banana plants and Logee's NEVER disappoints me. They always come in healthy and happy. I am living in the NYC area and it was very cold out as you can imagine, and the plant had ZERO damage from the cold. I highly recommend getting your plants from them, Banana plants are very tough especially for tropical plants. If you wish to start growing tropicals then this is a good starter one. any questions you have (and I always have tons because I love learning about them) the staff is patient and helpful. Don't be afraid to ask for info, do your homework, and you will have a great experience!!! I know i did!
