Yes, that's right. "Technically" means "assuming that you are referring to 'Musa' intended as proper botanical taxon". A bit redundant, but i have seen for sale some Ensetes listed as Musas (Musa maurelli is pretty common), so I did think that the fact was worth mentioning. Buying a Musa maurelli hoping to reproduce it by pup, can be a little tricky (even if doable).
