(13 reviews) Write a Review

Nymphoides Aquatica, also known as Banana Plant gets its nickname from its interesting looking roots. This plant should remain partially unplanted with only 1/4 of its roots to be planted into the substrate. This plant grows quickly and can cover up a large part of any aquarium in no time. Give your aquarium that unique look with one of these banana plants.

    My Banana Plant came in great condition! There was one leaf that melted, but after a few days the leaves look strong and healthy!

    What a cool little plant

    It was silly of me to order right before Thanksgiving weekend, and this plant arrived with one leaf on a long stem melting and the others looking poorly. I plopped it into my tank and waited as the melting one died entirely. But now, a couple of weeks later, a new leaf has grown and the remaining three look great!

    This plant is awesome! Looks great attached to a big piece of driftwood, and grew 2 new leaves in 6 days. Great customer service and smart plant packaging too.

    Such a cool plant. Very strange looking. I planted it as my centerpiece plant and it is looking great already. There were two new leaves within 48 hours. Unbelievable. I almost wish I had got more than one because of how cool looking it is.

    Arrived a little melted but immediately started growing new leaves - has about five now. Such an easy plant!

    This plant is doing good and already growing new leaves, as well as rooting.
