What should I do if I water my Edible banana too much or too little?

Learn More
If you find that you have overwatered your Edible banana and you are concerned about the associated risk of disease, you should intervene immediately. Often the best approach for an overwatered Edible banana is to uproot it from its current growing location. Once the plant is out of the ground, you can allow its roots to dry a bit before planting it in a new growing location. Ensure that the new growing location has soil with good drainage. If you grow in pots, you may also want to move your plant to a pot with more or larger drainage holes. In the case of underwatering, all you will need to do is increase the frequency with which you supply water to your plant.

Edible banana (Musa acuminata)
Edible banana
A species of Musa, Also known as Monkey banana, Wild banana
Botanical name: Musa acuminata
Genus: Musa
Description
Edible banana (Musa acuminata) is an edible evergreen perennial plant native to Southwest Asia. Some people may perceive edible banana to be a tree, but it is a perennial plant. Edible banana is one of the earlier domesticated plants by humans in the history of evolution. The cultivation of these plants for fruit is a major industry. They are also cultivated as ornamental plants.
Garden Use
The edible banana looks stunning when mixed into a bold border with other foliage-heavy plants, but it can also be grown as a single tree. With so many varieties to choose from, the plant also works well in containers, and can be grown as a houseplant too. Whether you grow it indoors or outside, this is an easy plant to care for when provided with the right conditions. Its dramatic foliage adds an instant tropical appeal to the space around it, and the edible fruits that some varieties produce are always a bonus.
