Banana Tree Spirit is a kind of natural ghost/ spirit / fairy that transformed from the tree by itself, not possessed by a wandering ghost. However, a banana tree might be inhabited by a Pontianak, or a wandering ghost instead and not the natural Banana Tree Spirit. So be careful.
Ancient Chinese Texts had written:"Tree that grows old and never die, will become a Tree Spirit / Tree Fairy (树精)." - Sucking up the essence of the Sun & the Moon and energy from the nature for a very long time, the tree transforms into a spiritual being, usually more powerful than other common ghosts / spirits.
Many people have heard stories about Banana Tree Ghosts and how some guys try to woo them out for sex, and folks seeking their help at night asking for Lottery Numbers... but very few has ever seen (except some very few Taoist Sorcery Practitioners) the Taoist Talisman of Banana Tree Ghost / Spirit/ Fairy.
As a form of respect, Banana Tree Spirits should be addressed as Banana Tree Fairies. By respecting her as Fairy, You will now feel delighted, safer to "own" her, or "do anything" with her.
Even by looking at the Banana Tree Fairy Talisman, the lay Chinese Folks will not even know it is actually a Banana Tree Fairy Talisman, unless You tell him /her.
Banana Tree Fairy Talisman is used for opposite sex attraction, seek Lottery Numbers, and call upon the Banana Tree Fairy to meet You at night.

Thai Version Of Banana Tree Ghost /Spirit / Fairy
In Thailand, Banana Tree Ghost / Spirit is called Nang Tani (Thai: นางตานี; "Lady of Tani") , Phi Tani (ผีตานี; "Ghost of Tani") or Phrai Tani (พรายตานี; "Nymph of Tani"). This ghost inhabits the clumps of wild banana trees (Musa balbisiana), known in Thai language as Kluai Tani (กล้วยตานี) and is popularly represented as a beautiful young woman wearing a green traditional Thai costume.
Nang Tani belongs to a type of female ghosts or fairies related to trees, known generically as Nang Mai (นางไม้; "Lady of the Wood") in the Thai lore.
Most of the time, Phi Tani remains hidden but she comes out of the tree and becomes visible especially on full moon nights. She has a greenish complexion, blending with the tree. She generally appears in a standing position and her feet don't touch the ground, but hover slightly above it.
Nang Tani generally has a gentle disposition. Folks will tie colored satin cloths around the trunk of the banana tree if found to be haunted by Nang Tani. Offerings are made to her in the form of sweets, incense sticks and flowers.
