It's not a true edible banana but related plant in the same family called 'ensete'. E. Maurelii are well established in cultivation here in the usa. It's neither new nor rare as always with ebay...buyer beware...


you can find them at stokes..

Jeff Yeah you can find the regular one at most places but that is the first white variegated one I have ever seen.

We had one like that at the nursery about 3 months ago, ph levels were really low, added some humic acid to it and the variegation went away! Would have loved to see what it would have looked like, but i think it was just a freak accident

Did everyone notice that every plant they are selling has variegation in it? Either this store only buys/resells variegated lots, or they have their own variegation techniques, hmmmm....

I wonder if the owner shows some variegation, like freckles or something...

I am not an expert on variegation, but I have observed that variegation can be changed by soil ph. AEAE bananas can lose their variegation by a sharp change in soil ph. RED kru can change to green kru by a shift in soil ph. Also viruses are sometimes deliberately introduced in plants to obtain variegated flowers and foliage. The most common virus shows up as a bright yellow leaf margin. This is known as virus induced variegation.

Jeffrey, you are RIGHT ON!
the 'rare' curcuma he has up there is either a scarlet fever or yunnanensis 'yunnan plume' im thinking scarlet fever tho
and this is what a variegated hibiscus looks like.

I had a basjoo that I inadvertantly planted in a spot where there had been a tree and we had ground down the stump, so I forgot about it. It had variegation until I moved it to a place where it had regular soil. Then it got healthy and green.
Since none of you all have heard about this banana either, it doesn't say good things about it, does it?

maybe not...I personally wouldn't pay big bucks for something that's going to quickly grow out of it's white and green variegation anyhow.

I wonder why they bought it? Maybe they have the Ensete propigation tecnique down? I tried propigating this summer with two huge 15 gallon Ensete ventricosum 'Maurelli's, but so far only a crusty looking lump on the soil. I'm thinking I should have tried dividing one of them instead, but maybe they will sprout eventually.
