The tropical decorative plant known as the variegated banana plant is appreciated for its eye-catching leaves. It is not a real banana plant; rather, it is a hybrid of the banana species Musa acuminata and Musa balbisiana. The leaves of the variegated banana plant, which is green with cream-colored stripes running through it, gives the plant its name. It is a quickly growing plant that, under the right circumstances, may grow as tall as 3 meters.

The variegated banana plant needs frequent watering to maintain a wet but not soggy soil. Once a week, deeply water the plant; during hot, dry weather, water it more frequently. Don’t let the soil get fully dry in between waterings. Throughout the growth season, fertilize the plant every two weeks with a balanced fertilizer. To encourage leaf development, use a nitrogen-rich fertilizer. To provide nutrients, you may also spread a layer of compost or well-rotted manure around the base of the plant.
