Why we ♥ Banana Plant

Banana trees are one of the common trees that come to mind when dreaming of the tropics, but did you know that it is not really a tree? It is actually the world's largest herb. On banana plantations in the tropic the plants must be pruned to the ground after fruiting. The trunk is composed of the main fruiting stem enrobed by leaves. Still, due to its size, it is commonly thought of as a tree. They make good houseplants with enough light and water. While the fruit of many species is full of seeds and inedible, cultivars have been created over time that eliminate the large seeds and made the fruit palatable.
