Default Not Praying Hands

I think this one was supposed to be 'Praying Hands.' I had to move it, and it flowered right after it was moved, which is why I think it only has a few bananas on it. It's a short banana at around four feet tall. Any ideas?

Thanks for looking.

Guessing Dwarf Orinoco maybe? Fruits look pretty angular. (Definitely not Praying Hands - I think they are in the Saba family and huge and of course have the fused together fruit which I know you know )

I agree with JaNan. Definitely not Praying Hands. Probably D. Orinoco. Congrats, anyway.
