Question Musa balbisiana colla or Musa ornata?

All hello! Today has visited a greenhouse of Irkutsk institute of biochemistry of plants. At them there many different plants, palm trees, ficuses, citron.. Bananas only 2 kinds. It Musa Dwarf Cavendish and Musa balbisiana colla. A greenhouse in height of 5,5 meters. Musa balbisiana colla there is no there a place. It breaks leaves about a ceiling. Has powerful stem and greater leaves. Also it is a lot of puppies. But when I have seen a flower, I very much was surprised. It same as at Musa ornata!!! I never saw such huge Musa ornata! Here photos. Let's define, who it is. Employees of institute approve, that it Musa balbisiana colla. Also it from Indonesia is brought. Or it is huge Musa ornata or other version Musa balbisiana. Your opinion?
