Hi James.

Most of what gets sold as itinerans seed here in the US is actually yunnanensis - that's what happened to me in 2008/9. Where did your seed come from?


Nice job!

Russell

Thank you.

I wouldn't know how to tell the difference between itinerans and yunnanensis. I bought the seed from from a place called jungleseeds.co.uk I've used them a few times and had some good success, but the guy who runs the site doesn't collect the seeds himself, but relies on other wholesalers I should imagine.

That is almost certainly Musa yunnanensis.
