Default Re: Water suckers

I have an interesting question re sword and water suckers.

Here are some photos of my Williams with a health sword on the left and a semi sword/water on the right.

Notice the water has red blotches and the sword doesn't.

Has anyone noticed this with types that can produce red blotching on young leaves.

My Mysore and goldfinger TC plants have red blotching.

My dwarf Cavendish which I planted from a healthy sword sucker which was trimmed of most of the p-stem came up with red blotches on the leaves.

My Williams with the same treatment had no red on the leaves.

My question is, could this water sucker(?) be a dwarf sport . Do TC Williams have red blotches and do water suckers on Williams or any of the larger Caves have the red.

Do the large Caves produce dwarfs. Normally the large came from the dwarf.
