Default Musa sp nov (Big Flower), little one and odd one

On the left are two Musa sp. Nov (Big Flower), and a M. ornata royal purple(seed grown).
The weird thing is all the other Musa sp. nov have been exactly like the one in the middle, lance shape leaves, with no red on the mid rib. The large one on the left looked different from the begining. It has wider leaves, with a noticable red mid rid.
Maybe a Musa yunnaninsis seed got mixed into the bag, or maybe it's something that was harvested in the same area as M.sp nov. At any rate I really dig it, and plan on testing it's cold hardiness as soon as I have a backup pup.
Any thoughts? Does it look like anyones M.yunnanensis or is too hard to tell at that size. It has so far not been outside even last summer.

I can't figure how to upload this pic, so if you want to take a look the URL is-
I'll try to post in the gallery too.
