Bananenplant - Tropische Plant

The Musa basjoo is the most hardy banana plant that can tolerate temperatures down to -7C. The roots are even stronger, they can tolerate -15C/-20C (outdoors). It is also the best banana plant to plant out in your garden.

It grows fairly fast and can grow up to 400 cm high in the Netherlands, with leaves as long as 200 cm. A warm summer can also produce 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.

If you want to buy a hardy banana plant, we recommend the Musa basjoo, it's a real topper.

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

We therefore recommend that you keep cuttings of 35 cm indoors until the end of April/May, so that they can grow well, and then plant them out. Then you have a beautiful large 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 open ground).
We recommend to protect the Musa basjoo!
You can do this by packing the trunk in the colder months.

Protecting the Musa basjoo in winter is how you do it:
1. First, remove all the leaves of the Musa basjoo.
2. Chop the trunk at the desired height (1 metre high).
3. Chicken wire netting around the trunk and top it up with hay.
4. Old leaves on the ground near the Musa basjoo.
5. Then wrap him up with a fleece or jute.

If the strain was well enough protected during the winter months, the Musa basjoo will grow out of it again!
If the trunk has not or not well protected, the Musa basjoo will turn into a goo-like substance. Attention: remove the rotten parts and then the Musa basjoo will come out of the ground again later!

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

Despite the care taken when packing, it can happen that a leaf breaks off during transport.

That's okay, 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.

Let your plant shine

A plant enhances the atmosphere much more and becomes more beautiful with a decorative pot that matches both the plant and its space. The recommended diameter of a pot for this Musa basjoo is 27 - 38 cm. This is not only an eye-pleasing proportion, but also makes caring for the plant more easy.

Pay attention

Some (to all) leaves can be removed for transport. Despite the care taken when packing, it can happen that a leaf breaks off during transport. That's okay, you can just cut it off and a new one will grow very quickly.

Watering

This plant should be watered regularly. During sunny periods we recommend watering every day. During less sunny periods we recommend watering once every 3 days, unless it has rained. The Musa Basjoo consists of 80% water. We therefore recommend that you keep the root ball well moist.

Placement

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

Nutrition

Nutrition is very important for plants. We recommend the use of high quality Mediterranean nutrient tablets, which you simply push into the soil next to the plant. This ensures the supply of all the necessary nutrients and the plant will keep its dark green leaf colour.

Cutting

The leaves can be cut off at the stem.

The Musa basjoo is perfect for the Dutch garden!

Yes, the Musa basjoo is completely winter hardy, but that only applies to the trunk. The roots must remain under the ground, because there it does not or hardly freeze. Above the ground the trunk remains standing that can withstand the cold. The leaves must be removed before the frost period. Then new larger leaves will appear very quickly in spring!

Frequently asked questions, FAQ

Is the Musa basjoo hardy?

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

How to take care of a Musa basjoo?

You can find everything about the care of the Musa basjoo in our expanded encyclopaedia article.

How to protect a Musa basjoo from frost / Winter

When the cold gets below -18 degrees Celsius, protection is necessary for the survival of a Musa basjoo. This is done by wrapping fleece (a well breathing thin cloth) around the canopy, so that the wind is blocked. When the Musa basjoo is standing in the ground, no protection for the root ball is needed. But when it is standing in an uninsulated pot, the root ball must also be protected. This is done by wrapping bubble wrap plastic (or other insulating material) around the pot, so that the wind no longer has any influence through the edge of the pot.

When the Musa basjoo waters?

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

What kind of ground does the Musa basjoo want?

A Musa basjoo loves good nutrient soil. For example, you can spoil the root ball with a bag of Florentus Mediterranean nutrient soil, specially developed for Mediterranean plants such as the Musa basjoo.

How to prune / cut a Musa basjoo?

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

When putting the Musa basjoo inside?

The Musa basjoo can withstand the hot sun well, so in the summer it doesn't have to go inside. It also can withstand rain, so in autumn and spring and rainy days of summer it doesn't have to go inside either. But, when it freezes down to -18 (so really exceptional in the Netherlands) it gets heavy, so it needs to be protected, or taken to a warmer place.

How to cut / propagate a Musa basjoo

For the multiplication of the Musa basjoo we refer you to our expanded encyclopedia article in which everything is explained.

Why does a Musa basjoo get yellow leaves?

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

Are Musa basjoo's poisonous to cats / dogs?

The Musa basjoo is non-toxic, and can therefore be placed in an environment with cats / dogs.

Where to buy a Musa basjoo?

We have a very simple answer to this question. Teeninga Palmen is a specialist in 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.
