Turn right twice, take forty-five steps, turn left and thirty-three steps, and you're there - at the foot of the banana tree where Black John the pirate buried his chest!

...wait, oh no! We forgot to plant the banana tree!

Fortunately, it grows quickly. It's up to you, start growing in your room with this all-you-need kit.

This ornamental banana tree has seeds that look like chestnuts. They germinate easily to grow a banana tree at home! It's an indoor plant, not outdoor.

What it contains:

  • Terracotta pot 5.5 cm in diameter
  • Dehydrated and compressed coconut soil, 3 cm in diameter (just add water)
  • Banana seeds
  • Instructions in English

What to do:

  • Soak the banana seed at least one night to facilitate germination;
  • Add the coconut soil to approximately 6 times its volume of water (it swells immediately);
  • Fill the terracotta pot with soil but set a small amount of soil aside to cover the seeds when sowing;
  • Plant a seed 1 cm deep and cover with soil;
  • Water and keep the soil moist, but not excessively, using a hand-held spray bottle;
  • Keep the pot at 18-20° C indoors, near as strong as possible a light source;
  • In 12 days, the green tip of the young banana tree will come out of the ground;
  • When it's bigger, move to a larger pot.
