This is quite a rare banana species from the tropical regions of West Africa. It grows along forest edges, often on steep slopes, so it is not endangered despite the small population. It is a tall plant which can be up to 4 meters high, which also has red stems at the base of each leaf.
As a house-, greenhouse or container plant, the species remains rather small. Overwintering is possible at a temperature of at least 12 degrees Celsius.
First scarify the seeds with some sand paper and then let them soak in lukewarm water for 48 hours. Sow them in sowing mix and let them germinate at 25-30 degC. Keep the soil constantly moist.
All year round
