How to grow a string of bananas

  1. Choose a well-lit spot indoors or a full sun, protected position outdoors.
  2. Fill the pot with Yates Thrive Succulent & Cacti Potting Mix.
  3. Remove the plant from its container, try not to disturb the roots excessively. Give the foliage a light prune to encourage new shoots.

  5. Water regularly in summer but reduce in cooler months.
