Hi, I am
Hi, I'm Caesar!
You may also know me as the Banana Plant or Musa Basjoo. I am also sometimes called the Fiber Banana. I am the winter hardy Banana Plant and bring tropical vibes to your garden!
Originally I come from far away, from China and Japan! Here I am known for my medicinal properties. I also live up to my name, Fiber Banana. They use my fibers to make fabrics and I am also used for binding books. In your garden I like to be beautiful, I am also quite good at that. I am very versatile, that's for sure!
Where should you place me?
I love the sun, so put me in a sunny spot out of the wind. This is where I prefer to be!
What do I like?
My beautiful leaves consist of a large part of water, and therefore it is really important for me to drink a lot! Therefore, water me regularly and give me some fertilizer every other week. Outside the flowering season, I need less water and no fertilizer.
Plantanious works together with the Work with Nature foundation. Our tropical rainforests are disappearing at a rapid pace and an enormous biodiversity is being lost along with the trees. If it were up to us, the jaguar would soon walk around again in the rainforest in Costa Rica protected by 'Adopt Rainforest'! The place where many of our special plants originate. In order to make an important contribution to the goal of the foundation - to protect 2,000 hectares of rainforest in the next ten years - we donate part of our turnover to protect part of the tropical rainforest. To achieve their goal, the foundation puts money into protection, conservation, reforestation, education and research.
