        plant.  Actually, if you can give it enough light, bananas are quite tolerant of overwatering (and pretty much over-everything-ing).  They stay small, too, if you keep them in a small pot.  But they need the light - that's the reason they don't qualify as a "houseplant", for things to be considered houseplants they need to tolerate full shade.
