If you are in zone 8 or higher you can plant it outside. They prefer full sun, ample moisture and good drainage. Since it only gets about 24" tall, it can also be grown as a houseplant in a sunny window or greenhouse.

Hi Pitis
I bought that one last year.I don't know your location.Its a zone 9 banana.Its not suppose to grow over 2 ft.It is suppose to stay short& stubby.When I did research on it.They did not have many good things to stay.Is a lil princess version also& it is suppose to be a better cutlivar than ours.Mine seems fine so far...no problems at all.I grew in pot it came in over the winter ( was a clearance item from lowes)I plan to dig when nights hit 40s.I just set infront of north window on floor and was fine.barely watered ( south windows are full in winter)Mine has set a pup off it also.I think I found that in July sometime.

you can find mine easier in brugmansia albulm it would be at edge of a daydreams/monika brugmasia or some of the brug seedlings page too might get a glimse.

only recomendation is when planting it out...wait till soil is warmer.my leaves got yellowish& seemed to jus sit doing not a thing for a good month.I planted it late April& will wait till May this time...and yeah...it went through the freak snow event in april...with a towel
mines full sun.it gets lots of water and lots of fertilizer as its in the brugmansia bed beside a white victoria salvia.I barely water it in winter.

Also WELCOME to the forum.Hope to keep seeing you around.Also be sure to join the fall seed swap comeing up soon...just watch the seed forum!
