The banana plant (Musa) “Double/Mahoi” is a Dwarf plant that grows 5 to 7 feet tall. Mahoi means twins in Hawaiian. This banana plant is unique because it produces two large heads of fruit on the same plant and on rare occasions can produce three. The fruit is very sweet and tasty and should be considered among the best. The plant is a Dwarf Cavendish mutation, don’t mistake that for GMO. This is a rare and unusual banana. Musa Double Mahoi will not grow double stalks until second year.

Banana plants are easy to grow, tropical flowering plants that produce multiple hands of delicious fruit. Bananas will happily grow, flower and fruit in a pot or in-ground. They add the ultimate tropical accent to any outdoor space, garden or patio. In cooler zones a containerized banana plant can be relocated indoors for the winter months.
When you receive your new banana plant, there is no need to worry about planting right away. Your new plant can be stored for a while by simply placing it in a bucket with about a half inch of water in the bottom and moving it to a shady location, simply keep moist. This will give you plenty of time to select the ideal location for your new banana plant.

All banana varieties grow very well in containers, indoors or on the patio. Smaller varieties grow best indoors in 12″ to 18″ diameter pots while larger varieties need enough room for growth, generally a 18″ to 36″ diameter, 14″ deep container will suffice. Remember the looser the roots, the taller and healthier your banana will be. When the plant becomes root bound its growth will slow, at that point it is time for a larger pot.

Light: This banana plant requires 80-100% sunlight. Depending on your location full sun is often best. In the northern end of their grow zone, containerized Two Stalk Double Banana Plants should be brought indoors or protected during the winter months. In-ground plants require heavy mulching and often die-back, allowing the plant to regenerate and send up fresh, new plants in the spring. The patio zone is 4b-11 which means the potted plant will flourish over the summer months in colder zones but must be brought inside before winter.
