Default Musa arunachalensis ? which one ?

Bought 10 seeds of musa arunachalensis and two of them sprouted the same time, but they totally different , obviously not the same banana. I've found aruchanalensis has the red markings , so should be the bigger one in the ground, then what would be the other one ? Or i mistaken and the one in the pot is aruchanalensis. Please help

I have not grown this species so can't say from personal experience, but as a default fact of biology since these are true wild plants grown from seed you can always expect some degree of variability between individual seedlings, that's just how nature works. The plants are also quite small so give them some time to mature and get past their juvenile stage, traits sometimes change drastically with age.

They are both Arunachalensis. Although one is in a pot. Why not plant them both in the ground?

How come they can be sooo different ? Didn't put into the ground as the second one was too small. Very slow grower comparing to first one. I don't see similarities between them.

All beautiful plants, but the seeds most probably do not come from wild plants, but plants on a nursery in Kalimpong, India. Here the wild plants are brought and grown for their seed. Unfortunately this way they can be cross-pollinated by other species and there is the possibility of hybrids.
I'm not saying this is the case, because wild species may indeed be very variable, but I'm saying there is the possibility.
Kind regards,
Remko.
