  • Though they grow as high as trees, banana and plantain plants are not woody and their apparent "stem" is made up of the bases of the huge leaf stalks.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Bananas will grow in most soils, but to thrive, they should be planted in rich, well-drained soil.
  • The best possible location would be above an abandoned compost heap.
