The Bhutan banana is very rare and was only discovered in 1994. The species is barely known in cultivation. The plant grows up to a maximum of 3 meters, has a pinkish white inflorescence and grows relatively fast. The midrib of the leave is dark purple on the bottom. The plant can be kept as a containerplant at a minimum of 5 degC.
Sand the seeds with sanding paper and soak them in lukewarm water for 48 hours. Sow the seeds in sowing mix and keep the soil constantly moist by covering the soil with plastic foil or glass. Let the seeds germinate in a warm spot indoors (for example in the sun or near a heater). Germination can take a few weeks or months, and can still occur as long as the seeds are firm.
