I have a dwarf banana golden lotus and it has one leaf on it atm and i want to know how long it would take to get more leafs. Its inside in my bathroom near the window where the sun comes though.



bit like asking how long is a piece of string, lol! Depends entirely on the conditions - outside during summer, with sufficient water and warm conditions with long daylight hours, growth rate will be rapid. Inside, this time of year, much slower. And that's all I can tell you I'm afraid.

It does depend on the variety, but I bought a dwarf variety a couple of years ago and kept it in a pot outside on the patio. It had 1 open leaf in May, 3 by the end of June and 6 by September. Unfortunately I failed to overwinter it properly and lost it.
