About dwarf Cavendish This particular species is known as the dwarf Cavendish because it doesn’t grow very tall, maxing out at around three metres. It’s unlikely to even get as tall as that as an indoor plant, but it’s still a very large plant. Its leaves are enormous, so it’s a good one for homes with lots of space.The dwarf Cavendish is a fast grower in the right conditions. It likes a lot of light and will even be happy with some direct sun throughout the day. Let its soil dry out a little between waterings, but make sure to keep it regularly misted as those giant leaves need a lot of moisture. You can help it grow healthily by giving it a feed with liquid fertiliser once per month in spring and summer.Don’t worry if you ever see tears in its leaves. Because of their size, they can be fairly easy to damage, but it grows so quickly that it will soon replace any broken growth. Please note that despite the name, this banana tree won’t fruit. You’d need a considerably hotter house for that.Did you know?Cavendish bananas are the most popular banana in the world.
