I bought this silk banana tree for my master bathroom which is a very large room with high ceilings. It is perfect and gives the room a tropical feel which is just what I was looking for. Finally got rid of that old ficus tree. The large leaves will be easy to wipe clean that's a plus. The bananas are so-so, the leaves are very nice & realistic looking even has brown spots. If you buy this tree, you will have to purchase another pot for decoration because it just comes with a small plain plastic container. I dressed it up with a tall planter (wanted the additional height) & river stones to cover the "dirt". It is absolutely stunning now with these additions. I gave it only four stars because of the cheap little pot it comes with. Compare the prices, you will buy from Overstock.
I was looking for a tropical silk plant or tree for our newly remodeled Florida room with a tropical theme. I was specifically looking for a banana tree and this one was just perfect! Everyone comments on it when they visit and the bunch of bananas on it are a big hit. The only thing is you will want to put it in a decorative pot or basket as the plastic one it comes in is not attractive.

I normally would not use a fake plant in my home. But I had long wanted to have a real banana tree, which would make my living room feel like tropical place. However, a real banana tree would be very difficult to grow in a living room. I took the risk to buy a fake one from Overstock, after reading the positive comments on this website. And I am glad I made a right decision.

I bought this Banana tree, as it is one of my favorite trees, I remember growing up in California, playing in the back yard, that had a big bunch of them growing together..Banana's and all....since then, they have been one of my favorite trees.as I no longer live in Cali..and Colorado, well Banana trees don't or cannot grow there..WE have some fake Banana trees, from another company in our computer/tropical room, and I was looking for another one, to add into the room, ,and saw one at the BIG O, after reading the reviews, decided to take a chance, and boy am I glad I did...Beautiful.....And talk about FAST delivery..took three days and here it is, setting in our living room....Thank you once again BIG O for the Childhood memories and the beautiful life like Banana tree..I LOVE IT, Banana's and all...
I love my banana tree! It arrived on time and looked just like it did in the picture. I'm not a fan of "faux" plants, however I needed something for my tropical dinng room which gets very little sunlight. I am very impressed with the way it looks. It really adds to the room. I get compliments on it all the time. The price was reasonable as well. Thanks overstock for selling such a good product.
Very realistic palm - little tricky opening and arranging the leaves but gorgeous once done. Leaves are a little stiff but the trick is to bend them in the middle and then curl them. Sturdy, colors true to picture. Palm needs a larger pot, I chose a ceramic one 13" high, 16" diameter, and it looks great. Love the clump of bananas too! Highly recommend this product. Good price and speedy delivery.
This would be a great tree if the manufacturer had given the surface under the leaf, which is visible while seated, more detail. I do like that some of the leaves are torn and browned much like a live banana tree. It helps to find a pic of a live one in order to bend and angle the leaves just right. In order to give this tree an even more realistic look, I cut off the bananas with a wire cutter. It makes it look less plastic. All in all, I would buy another if needed.
Have this "banana tree" on our lanai in Florida. We're not there all the time, so real plants die in the interim periods, but I wanted something that would give the lanai some character and this certainly did it. One couple we entertained wanted to know when we were going to pick the bananas! I thought they were kidding, but nope! So I won't get two, because that would be a dead giveaway! Minor assembly required - it was easier to put together than to get it out of the box.
Is a gorgeos product for your livingroom, just is a must to replace the vase

I have an island themed home so I was looking for something to compliment the decor. I had a palm tree near the window but sadly it was really hard to grow anything in that corner. After looking at various faux palm trees, this banana tree was a site for sore eyes. It arrived in two pieces which I just snapped together. The leaves were straight so they just needed to be bent and voila! The banana tree gave life to that problematic corner in the house.
