The banana plant is expected to have originated some 10,000 years ago. It is even suspected that this plant produced the world’s first fruit. On this page, you will find all information on Banana plant care. Follow these Banana plant care guidelines and help your live a long and healthy life.
The lower leaves of the banana plant will eventually develop brown edges. This is part of the natural process and nothing to worry about. You can simply cut these edges to maintain their ornamental value. In time, the lower leaves will die completely. Cut this leaf stem about 5 centimetres or 2 inches above the trunk. These 5 cms will then slowly shrink, after which you can easily remove them.
It is important not to cut the leaf stems right at the trunk! When you cut a stem, it becomes susceptible to diseases. If you cut the stem 5 cm above the trunk, only this small part could become infected. And because the plant sheds this remaining 5 cm, it cannot become infected itself.
