I found this plant next to the dumpster. It looked in good shape, so I took it. I have no idea what it is. I was told it could be a banana leaf plant, but aren't those massive? This is a bit small. Thoughts?

Think it's a Bird of Paradise...someone will confirm. Good find. Needs a lot more light and direct sun than where you have it in the pic.

I agree

@Mardel They would definitely benefit from it for sure. But i personally dont have mines in high humidity, they do ok.

I mist it daily ,I don't have a small humidifier for that space. What can i look out for if lack of humidity starts taking place?

@Mardel Leaves will begin to droop and curl up if its left too dry. But as long as you water it regularly its alright.

Only noticeable thing about mines is that for the past 2 years ive had it, its never bloomed. I only have leaves, which is def. OKAY with me.
