Aquarium Banana Plant: Care, Propagation & Dying Plants

Aquarium Banana Plants are easily identified by the grouping of their tubers that are (when planted) located directly above the soil. They look like a small bunch of unripe bananas which give it the charming name Aquarium Banana Plant. These tubers are where the Aquarium Banana Plant stores its nutrients. It is important to note that these tubers are supposed to rest above the soil. They are not a part of the plant’s roots. If they are planted below the soil, they will rot, and your Aquarium Banana Plant will die.
