Musa basjoo

Japanese Fiber Banana

Bananenplant - Tropische

Read more
in antraciete pot The best banana plant to make your garden tropical, as the stem can tolerate cold down to -7C. With the roots in the open ground, it can survive at -15C.

It grows fairly quickly and can grow up to 400cm tall in the Netherlands, with leaves as long as 200cm. During a warm summer, it can also develop a lotus flower on which small bananas can grow. Unfortunately, in almost all cases they are too small to eat, but it really gives the feeling of the tropics in our Dutch backyard.

Would you like to buy a hardy banana plant? Then we recommend the Musa basjoo, it's a real winner.

The Musa basjoo is a fast grower but stops growing below -14C.

We therefore recommend that you keep the 35 cm cuttings indoors until the end of April/May, so they can grow well, and then plant them out. Then you will have a nice big banana plant in the summer months.

Winter protection:
The roots of the Musa basjoo are very hardy, sometimes it is even said that they can have minus 20 degrees (in the open ground)
We recommend to protect the Musa basjoo though!
You can do this by wrapping the trunk in the colder months.

You can protect the Musa basjoo in the winter like this:
1. First, remove all the leaves from the Musa basjoo.
2. You cut the trunk to the desired height (1 meter high).
3. Chicken wire around the trunk and fill it with hay.
4. Old leaves over the ground near the Musa basjoo.
5. Then wrap it with fleece or burlap.

If the trunk was protected well enough during the winter months, the Musa basjoo will continue to grow from there!
If the trunk was not protected or not protected well, the Musa basjoo will turn into a gooey substance. Please note: remove the rotten parts and then the Musa basjoo will emerge from the ground again later!

The Musa basjoo is only hardy in the open ground. In a pot, it should be overwintered frost-free.The best banana plant to make your garden tropical, as the stem can tolerate cold down to -7C. With the roots in the open ground, it can survive at -15C.

Let op, belangrijk!
Deze plant staat in onze partner privekas en kan helaas niet particulier bezocht worden. Wel kunnen wij eventueel foto's maken voor u van een specifiek exemplaar.

Some (to all) leaves may be removed for transport.

Despite the care of packing, it is possible that a leaf may break off during transport.

This is not a problem, you can just cut it off and a new one will grow very quickly.

We always recommend to immediately repot a purchased plant into a larger sized pot, because the pots sold are usually completely rooted. It allows the plant to root more, grow more and it's better for keeping the soil moist.

Most often the plant is around the minimum size. The height of the plant is always incl. pot height. Its actual height depends on the various sources of supply and how long the plant has been staying and growing in our stock environment.

Pay attention

Some (to all) leaves may be removed for transport. Despite the care of packing, it is possible that a leaf may break off during transport. This is not a problem, you can just cut it off and a new one will grow very quickly.

Watering

This plant needs to be watered regularly. During sunny periods, we recommend watering every day. During less sunny periods we recommend 1 time every 3 days, unless it has been raining. The Musa Basjoo consists for 80% of water. We therefore recommend that you keep the root ball moist.

Placement

The Musa Basjoo banana plant needs a place with lots of light in order to grow quickly. However, it can also be placed in a spot with a lot of shade, only then it will grow a bit slower.

Nutrition

Nutrition is very important for plants. We recommend that you provide this plant with a good nutritional basis by using high quality Mediterranean soil. We also recommend to add extra nutrients to the soil by means of Mediterranean nutrition tablets, which you simply press into the soil next to the plant. This ensures the provision of all necessary nutrients. The plant will then also retain its dark green leaf color.

Cutting

The leaves can be cut off at the stem.

Recently visited products

The Musa basjoo is well suited for the Dutch garden!

Yes it is! The Musa basjoo is fully hardy, but that only applies to the trunk. The roots should remain under the ground, because there it freezes little or not at all. Above ground, the trunk remains standing which can withstand the cold. The leaves should be removed before the frost period. Then in the spring new larger leaves will appear very quickly!

Frequently asked questions, FAQ

Is the Musa basjoo hardy?

.

The Musa basjoo can tolerate the cold up to a wind chill of 18 degrees below zero (depending on how much wind there is). Below that it needs to be protected.

How to care for a Musa basjoo?

.

You can find all about the care of the Musa basjoo in our comprehensive encyclopedia article

How to protect a Musa basjoo from frost / Overwintering

When the cold gets below -18 degrees, protection is necessary for the survival of a Musa basjoo. You do this by wrapping fleece (a good breathable thin cloth) around the leafy crown to block the wind. If the Musa basjoo is in the full ground, then no protection for the root ball is needed. But if it is in an uninsulated pot, then the root ball should also be protected. This is done by wrapping bubble wrap (or other insulating material) around the pot. So that the wind has no influence through the edge of the pot.

When to water the Musa basjoo?

.

When the Musa basjoo is outside, it needs little water during the winters, almost none. But during the hot days of summer, it needs to be watered every day, sometimes as much as 2x on the very hottest days. In between, it can be once every 2-4 days, depending on the temperature. You can feel this on the soil. If the soil is reasonably moist, then the banana plant still has enough water.

What kind of soil does the Musa basjoo like?

A Musa basjoo likes good nutrient soil. For example, you can pamper the root ball with a bag of Florentus Mediterranean Nutrient Soil, specially developed for Mediterranean plants like the Musa basjoo.

How to prune / cut a Musa basjoo?

.

For a Musa basjoo, it is a natural thing for leaves to become dry and die. You can simply cut them off close to the stem. The banana plant is not affected by this. It is also often recommended to cut off the leaves before winter, so the energy does not go there anymore to grow, because the new year new leaves will appear.

When to bring the Musa basjoo indoors?

The Musa basjoo can withstand the hot sun well, so in the summer it doesn't need to be put inside. It can also withstand rain well, so in the fall and spring and rainy days of summer, it doesn't need to go inside either. But, at -18 frost (so really by exception in the Netherlands) he gets it hard. Then he needs to be protected, or taken to a warmer place.

How to cutt / propagate a Musa basjoo

For propagating the Musa basjoo, please refer to our comprehensive encyclopedia article which explains everything.

Why does a Musa basjoo get yellow leaves?

It could be that the Musa basjoo is not getting enough water during the growing season, but it is also a natural thing for leaves to become barren. Some leaves have simply reached their age and then die. The leaves can be removed with scissors, or by hand.

Are Musa basjoo's poisonous to cats / dogs ?

The Musa basjoo is non-toxic, so it can be placed just fine in an environment with cats/dogs.

Where to buy a Musa basjoo?

To this question we have a very simple answer. Teeninga Palms is a specialist in the field of hardy Mediterranean plants and trees, and offers them for the lowest price and the highest quality, so the choice is easy!

Our plant sizes are determined by measuring the smallest plants up until the largest in a field with hundreds of plants. Because a plant is a natural product, it's possible a plant is a little smaller than the mentioned minimum size.

This deviation is 10cm maximum. In our guidelines we keep a margin of max. 10cm regarding the minimum size.

Note: when you order a plant that doesn't stay green in the winter, it's probably (when ordered during the winter months or the beginning spring season) smaller than the minimum size. This is not a problem in any case, because the plant will grow new branches or leaves and the minimum height will be reached within a short period. Your order will have the right size within a short time.

Special transport is required for larger/heavier plants or objects. This transport costs 29,95 (free for orders above 300). The benefit of this transport is that more products can be selected without getting additional transport costs. The delivery time of this transport type usually is within 1 workday. Howiever, it can take 1 or more days in some cases. If you're not at home when the driver arrives, the order will be placed in front of your door.
