Default Finally had a chance for a pic

Hi all. I fainally had a chance to take some pics of my one, only and first banana plant. I took it of the underside of a leaf as the leaves are the same color on top and bottom and I remember reading here that the color of the underside can make a difference in id. The leaves all start out much greener, especially on the bottom and the purple shading not only spreads but also darkens with age. Id help would be appreciated but I am assuming zebrina.
thanks
chibae

Siam Ruby, and a pretty one at that! The leaves get brighter red with sun exposure. Nice pic, thanks for sharing!

I've been told by a reliable source that the SR is a prolific pup producer.
