Why did my banana plant start floating?

When I first got my banana plant it sat obediently on the bottom.  Now it is floating around the tank as it it doesn't have a care in the world. Is this a sign of a problem, like rot in the plant, or do I need to secure it in some way?


Hi, totally normal!  As they grow bigger leaves, they start to float.  I have one in a new tank and it literally has a mind of its own.  You could plant the roots in your substrate but no guarantees it won’t float up!
