Banana Plant (Nymphoides aquatica)

The Banana Plant can make a visually interesting foreground plant due to its thick green tubers that give it its “banana-like” look. As the plant grows, it may produce a long leaf stem that will shoot toward the surface of the tank. Also, the plant may even grow small white flowers just above the surface of the water.

Can be left on the surface of the substrate but never bury more then 1/3 of the tubers.
