It's finally in the ground now, I kept it potted for a bit while I tested what it liked. It's been a couple months now I guess. Hope to see some soon, none yet. Great pic btw. Two awesome banana plants!

Talking Re: Black Balbisiana

Ryan, Beautiful plant!!! I think the plant you are referring to as Black Hawaiian is the Ele Ele banana which is similar, but not near as black. Yours looks to be the Balbisiana to me. Any who, I dig it.

There are a few different forms of 'ele 'ele, one I saw along the Hana Highway on Maui had pure black petioles and pseudostems (as far as I could tell). I couldn't really get close enough to get good pictures, but this is what I saw.

technically yes, but not in relation to them both having blackish coloration, so the answer is no.
