General Description: A banana lily is an interesting fore-ground plant whose roots resemble a bunch of tiny bananas. In an aquarium, the roots can be partially planted in the substrate and small green leaves will extend from the banana lily roots and reach for the water surface. They can also be grown as a floating plant.
What is special about me? Banana lilies can also be grown in an outdoor pond. It is an interesting pond plant with rounded heart-shaped leaves and small white flowers.
