Question M. Bronze? M. Orana Bronze?

Can someone good with identification please check out this pic and see what your take on it's actual species name?

I'm growing this seed, but I can't find anyone else with a picture like this one.

I've had great luck with Georgia Vines seeds, musa and all of her others!!! Georgiavines Passion Vines Aristolochia Passiflora Hibiscus Seeds

I don't know what it is exactly but its a beautiful flower, wow~!!
I think its maybe a cross between musa Ornata and Laterita.

Its definitely a hybrid of some sort, there are many out there with many different names, none of which are necessarily correct or more right than others. Some people may call the one you show something like ʻRoyal Purpleʻ or ʻRoyal Pinkʻ. The name M. ornata ʻBronzeʻ is normally associated with M. laterita, which the plant you show is not. If growing from seed, the offspring will likely be different from the plant it was collected from, but some of them turn out to be really cool plants.
Growing bananas in Colorado, Hawaii and Washington since 2004.
