This tropical plant enjoys full sun or part shade for best growth.  The Abyssianian banana needs plenty of water. The plant should not dry out between waterings, though established plants have some drought resistance.  Bananas are heavy feeders so regular fertilizer is helpful to maintain active and healthy growth.
