Description for Musa coccinea

The blood banana, is a variety of the wild banana Musa acuminata native to Sumatra, Indonesia. The blood banana is an ornamental plant, named for the dark red patches on its leaves, though its small seeded fruits are also edible.

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
Blood banana Cream to yellow Seasonal bloomer 5.00 to 6.00 feet easy to grow

Planting and care

Soil drainage is important for bananas. To improve soil fertility and drainage before planting a banana, amend the native soil with organic matter like compost. If planting in a container, choose growing medium formulated for container plants. Garden soils are too heavy and moisture absorbing for your red banana to survive.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Full Sun to Partial Shade well-drained soil Medium 57ºF Apply any organic fertilizer

Caring for Musa coccinea

  • Water applied too frequently will cause the roots of a red banana to rot. As you establish your watering routine, check soil moisture before watering. The soil should be mostly dry -- although not completely dry -- before watering again. Container plants may need to be watered more frequently than those grown in the ground.

Typical uses of Musa coccinea

Special features: Whether grown outdoors in the landscape or indoors as a houseplant, bananas (even dwarf cultivars) need lots of space. They are classic tropical foliage plants, which, if they fruit, produce attractive bunches of yellow bananas. Effective when grown as a garden centerpiece or for tropical flair near water bodies.

Culinary use: leaves

Ornamental use: The plant is used for ornamental purpose.

Medicinal use: na
