I have had a banana plant growing in my aquarium for about a year
now. Recently though, it lost all of its tubers. The plant seems to be
doing well, has a well developed root system, and 4 very bright green
leaves. Periodically it will send up a long stem to the surface that winds
up looking like a lily pad. It doesn't seem like it's dying, but, I was
wondering if the little "bananas" will ever grow back? I didn't plant them
in the gravel - I had the plant anchored to the gravel via a rock and piece
of string. The plant developed roots and anchored itself after a while.
