How to keep me happy and healthy

Sunlight

Place anywhere

Abyssinian banana can tolerate being far from a window, but will thrive nearer to a light source.

Water

Water semi-frequently

Abyssinian banana can withstand levels of low water availability for a few days.

Nutrients

Repot after substantial growth

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.

After your abyssinian banana has more than doubled in size, you should repot it to replenish its nutrients.
