Plant Description:

Musa ornata, also known as the "Ornate Banana," is a species of banana plant that is native to the Philippines. It is a small, ornamental banana plant that is often grown for its attractive leaves and compact size. The leaves of the plant are a bronze color, with a green midrib, and have a glossy sheen. The plant is typically about 3-4 feet (1-1.2 meters) tall, although it can grow larger in ideal conditions.

The Ornate Banana is a tropical plant, and it prefers warm temperatures and high humidity. It grows best in full sun or partial shade, and it needs regular watering and fertilization to thrive. The plant is propagated by division of the rhizome, or by seed.

It is cold sensitive, so it needs to be protected in temperatures below freezing. If you're planning to grow it outdoor, it best to live in zones 10-12, but it also can be grown indoor as house plant if provided with adequate light and warmth.

It's worth noting that this species of banana is not grown for fruit production, but purely for ornamental purposes.


Growing tips:

The Ornate Banana is a relatively easy plant to care for, but it does have a few specific needs that must be met in order for it to thrive. Here are a few tips for caring for a Musa ornata bronze:

  • Light: The plant prefers full sun or partial shade. If grown indoor, it should be placed near a sunny window. If grown outdoor, it should be protected from the hot afternoon sun.

  • Temperature: The plant is tropical and prefers warm temperatures, ideally above 60°F (16°C). It is not frost hardy and should be protected from freezing temperatures.

  • Humidity: The plant prefers high humidity. You can increase humidity around the plant by setting a tray of water near the plant or by misting it regularly.

  • Fertilizer: Feed the plant every 2-3 weeks with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer during the growing season.

  • Propagation: The plant can be propagated by division of the rhizome or by seed.

  • Pruning: Prune away dead or damaged leaves as they appear.

  • Pests: Common banana pests include aphids, spider mites, and mealybugs. Control these pests with regular inspections and appropriate pesticide applications.
