The Dwarf Cavendish is the perfect banana plant variety for growing as a houseplant in the UK. Too tender to spend the year outdoors, this banana named after William Cavendish, 6th Duke of Devonshire, was first brought to his greenhouses in the 1800s.

Reaching a maximum height of 3m, the dwarf Musa likes bright light and misting. Its big leaves are prone to tearing but are replaced very quickly. Sadly, you won't see any banana's on this plant in your home. 

Height: 140-160cm
Width: 100cm
Potsize: 34/30cm

     

     

    For no fuss or mess you can put the plant in the growing pot it arrives in straight inside a decorative one. This also allows allows excess water to be drained after watering. 
    For a good fit the opening (not diameter) and height of the new decorative pot need to be several centimetres greater than the current growing pot.
