Petco gets them in from time to time.

If the banana bits rot off, just bury the stem-head into the substrate so the leaves come up.

Propagation by sucker off the running roots or by lily-pad drift.

From what I've read these will grow another banana structure under the lily pad they send up. I've had two send up lily pads in a 5 gallon tank and one of the stems went all the way down the tank and came back up. Was wrapped around the filter and the heater and grew about 3 inches in diameter before the leaf died and the plant went into shock and dropped all its leaves. It's growing again now.

They are quite cute plants but they don't like having their leaves roughed up, they will wilt and drop them for any damage at all.

I have always admired these little plants. Do they require special lighting and could they go without fertilization? Or what kind? In the past when I have fertilized I felt it would create algae so I am afraid to.

Also do they require substrate or can they be tied to a rock? And if they root in the substrate does that mean you cannot vacuum near them?

Thanks!

Thanks!

They Need a decent bit of light, nothing crazy, but a good few hours at least a day with a flouresant light will make them happy. Fertilizer is good, yeah, try aqueon's plant food, it works well! Over dosing on fertilizer would maybe give you algae, but in normal amounts with proper water changes, youll be fine.
Im not sure, but I think they can live with out gravel. I vacuum (gently) by mine with no issues. Over time they implant sturdier and sturdier, so it gets easier.

So long as it isn't in a place to get knocked about by current, etc, you might not even need to tie it.

btw do those banana plants anchor it self on substrate? or just sink like that? does it have roots? or the banana looking is the root?
