Baloo's survival guide


Besides Baloo's life story, we have to comment on his remarkable leaves. They are quite fast growing and moisture-wicking, which makes for high humidity. Good for Baloo, good for you! Banana plants contain about 80% water. Needless to say, Baloo is a thirsty roommate and really adores the sun! So pick a bright spot and... go bananas!

How to care for Baloo

When we first met the Banana plant, it introduced itself with a tale from the jungle. Named after a playful friend from its past adventures, the Musa is here to bring joy and tropical vibes to your space. The Musa requires a lot of sun and water, but it's worth it since this plant is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S....
