How to draw a realistic Banana plant

If you look at the banana,then immediately comes the idea-that’s a tree!

But the joke is that a banana is grass in terms of botany. Big gigantic grass.And the banana is not a palm tree! A completely different, independent plant. And here I want to help children who do not live in warm areas and draw tropical plants as the imagination dictates.

From roots to crown the whole trunk is covered with petioles of dead leaves. The leaves themselves are so great that often tear along the veins and therefore it seems, that they have the scalloped edges.
