50cm Dwarf Banana Plant | Musa Dwarf Cavendish | 17cm Pot
50cm Dwarf Banana Plant | Musa Dwarf Cavendish | 17cm Pot | By Plant Theory
Banana plants add an instant touch of the tropical to your home. Made popular by their large paddle-shaped leaves, these plants are a great houseplant for beginners and are easy to grow if a few conditions are got right from the start. This Musa Dwarf Cavendish may sound a little fancy; its name comes from the 6th Duke of Devonshire, William Cavendish, so it is a bit posh - they are actually one of the oldest cultivated crops we have. This particular variety is central to our production of bananas worldwide! Potted up in your home this plant will sit happily in a bright sun-filled spot. When new growth appears leaves will emerge from the centre and slowly unfurl with great effect. This plant is also great for cleaning the air in your home.
