A couple of years ago a guy claimed to have brought a Brazilian plant from the jungle. He wanted to bring a banana but as soon as the plant grew it was obvious that this was no banana plant.
If you water it properly (meaning really a lot!) it grows superfast and if you take a dead part of the "root" and put it in soil it starts growing again.
The plant grows like a banana, the "branch" creates a leaf, it unfolds and then the branch keeps growing until there is a new leaf which unfolds...
Because it was supposed to be a banana and is growing amazingly fast, we called it "bananorris".
The thing is: I have this plant for about eight years now but I couldn't figure out what kind of plant it is.
Does anybody recognize it?
