Looked for these myself. My understanding is that they are super tropical and outside of an ideal climate don't thrive at all.

Bananas and tropical fruit trees and plants, The Fei Banana just caught
my attention about 2 years ago.

Just FYI, it's illegal to take a banana plant from the Big Island to the mainland. We have bunchy top, Panama disease, nematodes, and corm weevils here. You might be able to do so if they get inspected first or come from a certified nursery.

True Lactan should be an easy task,
Let's see what I can do for you, Since I know a guy from
the Philippines who lives here and have many types of
bananas from his homeland and he grows them all near
his house, So I can try and ask.

Hey Rob,
Thanks for your message, I am aware of the presence of those
Pests and Diseases on the Big Island, I am a very Cautious guy
I have also studied Botanics Formally, So I'm not going to put
My country and collection at risk, I am more interested about learning
and seeing the Plant ...If I will ever get any type of Fei it will be only from
a USDA Certified and Pests Free Nursery.

Cool, I have tried so hard and I even offered as much as $300 for them. In the states the cavendish lacatan is very common. True Lakatan is the favorite of the Philippines

LiorGal: Where are you located? What many people tend to overlook is that Fei bananas are rare for a reason, they are not easy to grow.

I wish I did know a nursery source. They're a rarity from any source here. They've been the most difficult for me to grow. In years I've never gotten fruit and nearly every plant has died within a year, even after they seem happy for the first several months. Good luck on your quest!

Hello Again Dear Rob,
I wish I did as well, I've been looking for those Fei's for so long,
and Couldn't find any, I had a dream to see them all: Ayuri, Afara, Portia
But I Couldn't even find one Variety yet, I know that they grow on Papua New Guinea
and they are Called 'Karat', Also they can be found on French Polynesia,
It's so disappointing that no one is Tissue culturing these, only in Species Preservation
Projects. I'm a Banana Addict, that's it, I have said it out loud for the first time..
PLEASE HELP ME GOD !.
