Banana plants are a low light plant. They grow best with at least 2wpg, but will grow even faster with higher light.

In my plant book to propagate it says to "firmly press adventitious plants or fully formed leaves into damp ground". I've never tried this so I don't know how it works.

When I had the plant, I found that it grew better with about half of the banana shaped roots planted in the substrate.

Those floating leaves don't last very long anyways. Just cut the stem off near the base as possible. You can also cut the holy leaves off with stem included, these will also eventually die if you don't.
