I wouldn't have thought so. Snow white has white leaves and the DNPs are usually lime green.

I am well on the wat to losing my 3rd DNP . I won't bother with any more they are too much hassle.

Thumbs down Re: Musa "Dwarf Namwah Pearl" and Musa sp. "snow white"

I've had my dnp all summer and it's struggled but lived. It shot out several leaves, some with black spots, but never grew very tall. Now that its winter I brought it in and it looks like it's gonna croak! What's up with em?!! They must be genetically weak or somethin'. I've heard about a lot of people loosing them and I think I do pretty good with nanas but this damn thing, I don't know.

No, as I see it, Namwah Pearl is variegated, right? But he snow is just the whitish coloured plant. That's all, ain't it?

Mine just bit the dust last week too. The leaves are fine one week, then develop black spots which eventually take over the entire leaf and that's it.
Four of them is enough, they just seem too weak no matter where they are grown.

Namwah pearl is very fertilizer/salt sensitive. Try watering it with distilled water.
