A lot of pups have that pink-reddish color when they first emerge. Musa basjoo, M. velutina, M. yunnanensis, M. itinerans, M. velutina, and others do the same thing. What I haven't quite figured out is why some emerge with that color, and others emerge green. What I have noticed is that the ones that DO emerge with a reddish color tend to be very vigorous sword pups.
