Why Grand Nain 'Naine' Banana Trees?
The Grand Nain is known for merging tropical-inspired good looks with easy care and fast fruiting. In fact, this long-leaved beauty yields large heads of flavorful bananas faster than any other tree, and produces well as a potted specimen...which means exotic fruit in even the coldest locations.
And since it's resistant to most diseases, the Grand Naine stands up to problems, including strong winds. Simply remove any damaged or worn leaves to stimulate the growth of new leaves, or even use them to wrap meat for your next barbecue. Seriously - there's nothing you can't do when it comes to the Grand Naine. During the growing season, you'll see fresh new leaves appear every few days.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Good roots great start up banana tree
They look good and appear healthy. Came on time and well packaged.
Does best 80-85 degrees indoors with bloom light on. I have a 1200W LED light, and the light will burn the leaves at less than two feet. Use mirrors or reflective mylar and place plant in corner, rotating 1/4 turn a week. I'm using perlite:vermiculite and a wick system (rope, one end in container and one below in saucer, feed and water from below). It takes up A LOT of nutrients. I switched to Miracle-Gro from General Hydroponic. It preffered the GH, but one batch of bananas isn't worth it (unless you don't care about the money). The higher the humidity the better. If room is less than 50%, mist daily. If you were a plant from Central America, what kind of weather would you want?
It was a gift as noted on the bill
This was a replacement for the bannna tree I purchased earlier. Very quick to reply to my damage tree and send me a new one without question. I will definitely buy more trees from them in the future.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: When deciding where to plant your tree, keep in mind that they prefer full sunlight. They can tolerate partial shade, but need at least 6 hours of sunlight a day. Banana trees don’t like extreme heat, so afternoon shade will be more beneficial for your tree than morning shade. Avoid areas that receive high winds, and ensure soil is well-drained.
Once you’ve scouted your planting location, dig a hole that’s twice as wide as the pot and just as deep. Place your tree in the hole, and make sure that it’s level with the surrounding ground and that it’s standing straight up. Gently back fill the hole, tamping down to prevent air pockets and give your tree a long, slow drink of water.
Tip: Mulch the planting site to conserve water moisture and keep grass and weeds away from the tree.
2. Watering: Keep your soil moist, but not oversaturated. Water your tree every 2 to 3 days during the summer, and every few weeks in the winter, depending on your climate. Warmer areas that are more prone to drought will require water more frequently. If your tree is in a shady area, it will most likely require less water.
But if you're not sure when to water, simply check your tree's surrounding soil about 2 inches down. If the soil here is dry, it's time to water.
3. Fertilizing: Banana Trees are often as hungry as they are thirsty. Give your tree a well-balanced organic fertilizer once a month during the growing season. Fertilizer will have a recommended dose for the size of your tree on the back of the package. We recommend giving your tree half of that dose for best results.
4. Pruning: Remove any damaged or broken leaves that hang downwards. After your tree produces fruit, trim it back to about 30 inches tall, and let the stem dry out for a week or two. Once the stem has dried, remove it. This will allow new banana tree stalks to grow. Once a stem fruits, it won’t produce again.
