Default Opinions on these?

I bought these 2 a few months ago in norcal. The guy I bought them from said he found a scragglybanana plant at his local nursery and only remembered that it’s an fhia. My guess is that they’re gold finger but thought they might be fhia18. Thoughts?

If it is a FHIA cultivar, it would have to be FHIA-03, but a little hard to say for sure without seeing a more mature bunch, but it’s feasible.

Gabe,
Is that because the pseudostem looks green in the photos? It was a twilight when I took those photos and they look a lot greener than they are. There's a lot of red streaks thoughout. Not nearly as red as in the FHIA id guide for fhia2 or 18, but nowhere near as green as the fhia3
