Default Generic 'Dwarf Banana' ID?

[IMG][/IMG]

Just curious if anyone has an opinion of what this banana might be. I purchased it in the houseplant section of Canadian Tire a few months ago labeled as 'Dwarf Banana.' Has grown a little bit but not much, nothing like the other young bananas I have in the house this winter.

Based on what I have seen on various threads and on the wiki my best guess (which means very little) is 'Little Prince' only because there is no red mottling on the leaves and the few pics of young 'little prince' I have seen seem to match most closely. But of course, I certainly have no idea how many other variations might have similar characteristics.

Getting a positive ID on a plant that size is really difficult. Best bet is to talk to someone who really knows the nursery industry and their suppliers and find out what plant they are cloning.

As far as the red spots on the leaves it does or doesn’t have. In my experience they seem to come and go with more or less light exposure. Also younger plants tend to have the wine spots more than older plants.

Plants look like super dwarfs and look very healthy. I would pot them in bigger pots this summer, bring them outside and let them rip. Good luck with them.

Unicorn Banana....the mythical beast eh?? Could be. And if I am lucky I might get it to flower in the next 10 years.

Thanks you two, I appreciate the response. I know that type of question is a bit ignorant, but I thought I would ask it anyway just in case there might be a more common 'big box banana' floating around. Ya never know!
