I only find Musa "Dwarf Namwah", not the "tall" variety. Is the Dwarf version the same appearence-wise? Also, they don't have any pictures of the young plant so I don't know if I should really risk ordering blind...
Alternatively they also have Musa "Ice-Cream" which they say is not "Blue Java" but instead "closer to namwah". I've only heard of "Ice-Cream" being used for Blue Java or for Namwah, not for anything in between... Could this just be tall namwah?
What would you do? Order both? Wait for a third shop to restock their dwarf namwah where I can see a picture of a pup and order only it? https://www.achat-vente-palmiers.com...rf-namwah.html
Thank you in advance!
100% different plants. Blue java are actually surprisingly rare as they are sometimes confused with namwa.
