Caring for your String of Bananas

  • Provide bright, direct sun. Very intense afternoon sun might be too much so just be aware.
  • Water only when the potting mix is completely dry. They are sensitive to overwatering and because they store water in their beads they may only need watering every 2-3 weeks.
  • Remove any excess water from the saucer after watering.
  • Fertilize once in spring and once during the summer with an all-purpose organic indoor fertilizer or use a liquid fertilizer when you water spring through summer. You can also use one formulated for succulents.
  • Could be toxic to pets
