Care Information

  • Site

    A conservatory is best but we have seen them in the middle of rooms with large windows growing really happily.

  • Temperature

    Warm in the spring and summer. Will not mind it a little chilly over the winter but not below about 10C.

  • Water

    Drinks an incredible amount when growing over late spring back when the days get short.

  • Feeding

    Lots and lots when growing! Seaweed extract feed works brilliantly.

     

  • Tip

    Watch out for spider mite the large fleshy leaves are irresistible to this dry air loving pest.

If you were so inclined to look into the history of edible bananas then the name Cavendish is very very pivotal. Get your own tropical slice of horticultural and agricultural history with these rewarding plants. We love them, feed them, water them, and re pot them in the spring and summer and they will grow beautifully. They can grow to between one or two metres over the years. Don't worry too much about leaves looking a bit sad over the winter, let them hibernate for a bit. They will need quite a bit of light but if it is in a spot that's out of sun cut right back on the watering over autumn and winter.
