Contrary to popular belief banana isn't a tree. It is a second highest (first is bamboo) grass. "About 70 species are known, distributed mainly in Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands. The northernmost species is a Japanese banana (Musa basjoo), native to the Japanese Ryukyu Islands, grown as an ornamental plant on the Black Sea coast of the Caucasus, Crimea and Georgia.The height of plants varies from 2 to 9 m and even higher. The cultivated banana leaves reach 275 cm in length and 60 cm in width, they can be completely green, green with maroon spots or green from the upper side and crimson from below. With a strong wind or rain, the leaves easily tear along the veins - such an adaptation helps plants survive in a tropical climate ... "
Traditionally, bananas are presented in three sizes: XS, S and M (trunk length from 8 to 18 cm). With this plant, I strongly would not recommend being attached to the scale. Firstly, we are all used to photographs of low plants, up to 5 meters. Due to which even a plant of size M will look quite right next to the 75mm figure. And secondly, not only adult plants are common, but also their shoots. I saw photos from Vietnam where the shoots of this plant are adult's shoulder high. Leaves and trunks are already available on the site and sold separately. Trunks from 7euro (for 3 sets of the smallest scale) to 12 euro for the largest plant. Boards with photo-etched leaves at 6 euro.
