The Q&A Archives: What kind of plant is this?

Question: Hi,

I recently bought a tropical plant but it didn't have a name on it. It's a green plant, with leaves that unroll as it grows, and water drips from it's fully developed leaves. I don't know what the name of this plant is, can you help me?

Answer: I really can't identify the plant without more information. It sounds like it might be a banana plant. You may have to cruise through some local nurseries to see if you can find a similar plant - one with a tag attached. Best wishes with your new plant!
