Nymphoides aquatica is known as the banana plant, It is given this name because of its banana-shaped roots which store nutrients. The rounded leaves differ in shades of green and can produce a flower in good light conditions.

Can be grown rooted or as a floating plant and thrives with low light and well-oxygenated water, It can be propagated from the runners and by splitting the rootstock up and re-planting. The roots should not be fully buried in the substrate.

Really like these wee plants,not had them long but they have rooted and growing well in my low tech tank. One of them has just sent up a runner to the surface(20in.approx) with a lilly pad beginning to unfurl ????

I was delighed with my banana plants when they arrived with the rest of my order, they were in very good conditions with 1 plant having 3 leaves.and the other having 2 . I put 1 in the tank with my platy fry which like to swim in about it and the other went to the tank with their parents and my rice fish, look forward to see them settle and grow now . Will be looking to purchase more ?

I love this little plant hanging off of my bogwood, I lost two of my 3 leaves due to a couple of mishaps but it still seems happy and a new stem is starting to appear but very slowly. well worth having in your tank and my ottos and bristlenose catfish like to keep it clean with no damage.

Ask a question about this product
Hi guys could this plant be carefully attatched to some redmoor root and grow sucessfully?

Sure that would work no problem :)

Hi, what's the water parameters for this plant, such as temperature, Ph,CO2?


The usual. Wide range of temps and pH. CO2 not required.

Are these plants very big ?( aka what sise tank could it go in). Could it go in my 10 l tank with a bit/ lot of trimming


nope! a 10L tank would be fine :)

does this plant like high flow (I would like to put it next to the output in filter).


Might be ok there 

Hi, on the description it says the plant can be left as a floating plant, if I leave it floating on the water surface will it root down to the substrate for it's nutrients or will it get what it needs from adding Nutro T


Might do both! I personally recommend planting it like a bulb

When will this be back in stock?
