A classic ornata. Original from India but now wide spread for his ornamental value. This very small species is very adaptable and very useful for pot culture in houses and offices. In pot, this banana flowers already when its150cm high. Planted outside it will grow around 200cm. It makes edible 10cm long bananas but these fruits have a lot of seeds and are rather bitter in taste, but the fruit, in combination looks very nice. The flower stays on the plant for at least 2 months !!! After flowering this plants makes a lot of sideshoots.
