Dwarf cavendish is a musa.

Wow, that video was SOOOOOOO very misleading. It should gone something like 'why spend a few dollars on store-bought bananas when you can spend several years and plenty of effort to grow your own!? They act like you can harvest fruit year round from a single potted banana.....riiiiiiight.

Anywho, I'm sure growing bananas would be a lot of fun for kids...so it's not like it's a huge waste of money or anything. Just don't get your hopes too terribly high on achieving fruit (since many of us northern/indoor growers have been at this for years and never even seen a flower).

And like Tony said, musa is the genus (like the 'family' but more specific) that includes all the edible bananas and a few inedible ones as well. Musa 'Dwarf Cavendish' is a variety within musa that looks like a very likely possible plant that the infomercial is selling.

I have seen that infomercial. To me, it looks like a Cavendish type. If you live in a warmer climate, it's better to plant it outside in the ground rather than keep it in a pot. If you live in a cooler climate, keep it in a large and put it outside in full sun during the warmer parts of the year and bring it inside during the winter before the first frost is predicted. It will not produce very much if you keep it inside all year round.
