Indoor banana plant care

The fruit trees are an excellent choice for growing both your garden and inside of your home, because not only can have a beautiful flowering plant but its fruits are delicious and with many vitamins, something essential in our diet.

Although it seems impossible, the banana as a houseplant can grow very well even though it does not have as much space as it does outside, so I would like to focus on this today

How to care for an indoor banana tree

If you want to know how to take care of an indoor banana plantation, here are a few tips:

  • The simplest solution is to opt for a dwarf strain to ensure it can thrive even when space is limited. The fruit is just as good so there is not much difference with the usual.
  • To grow it, you will need a large container that is deep enough to accommodate all the roots and that allows good conditions for adequate drainage.
  • It needs rich soil with very good hummus and well-drained, something that it has in common with its outer species. The pH should be between 5.5 and 7.0 and it is very important that the roots are well covered with soil.
  • It will also need a lot of sunlight, so put it near a window or in a place where you know, it will get plenty of natural light every day. It is estimated that it should receive about 12 hours of light a day, although if it is sunny you must protect it from the rays so that it does not burn.
  • The ideal temperature for its environment is about 20ºC, although it can survive with more or fewer degrees as long as they are not extreme temperatures or are in them for a long time.
