Default How to tell if pups are from Brazilian (dwarf) or Dwarf Namwah?

I had a plant flowering and it flowered in the garage so after I put it outside it rotted but it sent up a few pups. Now I don't remember if it was a Brazilian or a Dwarf Namwah.
Any tell tale signs that I can use to differentiate them?

Thanks

They are not quite as big yes but I would say yes. It is dark outside now so I will double-check tomorrow.

My FHN tc version of the
Brazillian looks like this...


Same red midrib but how about
the mini pseudostem and the stained
red splotches on the leaves?

What do you think?
Real or Knock Offs?

Post some photos. Those two are pretty easy to tell apart. Dwarf Namwah has mostly closed petioles and Brazilian has open petioles. In the smallest TCs or pups, these traits aren't completely reliable, but in full size plants they are.

Namwah has a characteristically light green psedustem, and very sleek petioles.
