I find the fact that banana plants have the ability to send up lilies interesting. I read on a web site to only plant the fine roots in substrate to prevent this from happening, and they will just send out leaves. The thing is, I would like to have the lilies in my aquarium once it is built. How should this be planted in order to get the lilies? Also, if anybody has some more pictures of the lilies, I would be interested in seeing them.

I have two Bannana plants in my tank and they never have bloomed. They have sent many floating leaves up and according to what I have read they are suppose to bloom after the floating leaves appear. When planting just press in to the substrate leaving the top half of the bannanas above ground. If you only plant the fine roots then you will have more compact growth & the leaves more than likely will not reach the top.
