Default Highly variegated offshoot from a completely green seedling

It's very common to get variegated offshoots from completely visual green seedlings that had variegation somewhere in it's pedigree. Normally it's a small amount of variegation that needs works to improve over subsequent generations but obviously this could also happen.

Getting less variegation is the same process as trying to increase the variegation and it starts by following that green and yellow leaf sheath back to the rhizome.

The initial pictures look like the newly unfurled leaves of my Namwah Pearl. The variegation on mine starts like that and then some portions of the leaves darken up. Thanks for the great information Pr! I’ve learned a lot from your posts!

No the very first picture more so. The last picture bananas look really cool! I’d be interested in one if you ever decided to sell.

Some people call this a pearl but it's not.

Some people don't even realize this cultivar produces fruit.

A lot of this misinformation would never happen if people simply start by saying that they have little or no experience but they have advice and an opinion.

I have some experience but I know you have much more than I do. I only said the first picture looked like my Pearl. I don’t see how that would come across in any sort of negative manner. If that somehow did, I apologize. I’be been here to learn and grow from people like yourself.

This isn't a pearl either but is often confused with the plant in the previous post.

This plant will die.

What is the banana in the previous post? It looks cool, but I was under the impression the mostly white ones don’t make it.

I was not referring to you at all, it never even crossed my mind that anyone would interpret it as negative. It's intended to be constructive for anyone it may apply to.

I apologize to you. I was just trying to figure out what you were calling a pearl and because there is so much misinformation about this plant and it's origin I probably wasn't as concise with my words as I should have been.

I do have a photo of the original pearl before it went into tissue culture and next time I run across it I'll post it.
