The bronze banana has a particular dark-red inflorescence, that would have the color of laterite (a tropical soil layer) and is therefore named Musa laterita. The species remains small and is therefore in temperate climates suitable as a container plant at a minimum of 5 degC. The leaves are vertically oriented, and the small non-edible bananas are greenish yellow. A sunny stand is recommended.

Sowing description:
