Bananas require moist soil but will rot if planted in water-logged soil. Plant these trees in a sunny location that gets some afternoon shade, especially in dry, hot climates. Bananas can be chopped down after their banana rack is harvested as there are typically new banana plants called 'pups' that spring up from the base of the mother tree.
