Default Unusual dwarf/bonsai bananas?

I ran accross these when ording some peppers on eBay. They are quite eye catching. I wouldn't mind having these in my sunroom.

Anyone have any experience with these? Do they need to trimmed as bonsai to appear this way?

They are fake plastic plants. This is the number 1 reason I don't buy anything on ebay anymore. I bought one plant from PR Giants but that's only because I know him from the forum.

So they are selling plastic seeds?

I've always had pretty good luck with eBay purchases. Just gotta be smart about it. Seeds and plants I've bought have worked out well to date.
This listing seems too good to be true I think. There's gotta be a catch.

You would only be out $.99, go ahead and order some and let us know what they do. They may be as advertised, with a lot of luck.

It would be generous to say they are selling seeds of fake plants, or even seeds at all, who knows what they are selling, pebbles? I wouldn't even give them the dollar to make another sale and be supporting this horrible scam.

I've talked to a couple people whom was "SCAMMED" by these Chinese sellers. They both received these tiny tiny seeds like grass seeds or something. 100% FOR SURE wasn't banana seeds! They both attempted to germinate them and nothing sprouted!

It's sad these guys selling fake plants, rainbow colored bananas, edible banana seeds, and anything else they can fake.

There are good banana sellers on eBay! Just do your research! Check all feedback! Check on here!

I wouldn't buy ANYTHING from China because of these scams. Please don't support these! Even just a $1. How many people say that and buy it! All of a sudden the scammer has $100. They are paying to list! If nobody would support them then they wouldn't list!!
