Dwarf Cavendish Banana Plant


The Dwarf Cavendish banana plant, scientifically known as Musa acuminata, is a delightful tropical plant prized for its compact size and flavorful fruit.

Light Requirement: Dwarf Cavendish banana plants thrive in full sun to partial shade. Provide bright, indirect light for optimal growth, especially if grown indoors. In warmer climates, they can also be grown outdoors in a sunny spot.

Watering Requirement: Keep the soil consistently moist, but avoid waterlogging. Water thoroughly when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Ensure proper drainage to prevent root rot, especially in container-grown plants.

Mature Size: As the name suggests, Dwarf Cavendish banana plants remain relatively small compared to other banana varieties, typically reaching heights of 4 to 6 feet (1.2 to 1.8 meters). Their compact size makes them ideal for indoor cultivation in containers.
