Default White Variegated Banana

I was looking for Dwarf Cavendish pics and came accross this. It's looks like the leaves are way to wide to be an Ae Ae. Variegated Cavendish maybe?

Hey Pitangadiego, the pictures are not showing on your website.

Those are the same crudely cut and pasted, super-imposed pics from the "popular" Ty-Ty Nursery. Same business owners as that of Aaron's bulbs, last time I checked.

Yeah , Ty Ty is sneaky. I am glad that the majority of gardeners on the net know that Ty Ty is a NO NO. Too bad they don't have the negative things on Garden Watchdog anymore.

Sometimes they do sneak on eBay.

The other major complaints is that they don't know how to ship banana plants. Too often they ship them just like bulbs, no leaves, no roots, with gel for moisture and wrapped air tightly which instead of preserving the bulb (or corms), the corm becomes rotten due to anoxic conditions. In itself the corm propagation is not bad but would require some skill to resurrect bananas from rotten "bulbs". It is recommended to ship the corms partially moist using peat moss or newspaper rather than with gel.

If you do manage to grow the corms from their shipment, it will always be the wrong cultivar. They don't care what cultivar they ship to you, as long as it is a banana, and sometimes I am unsure of that. One time I got a canna instead of banana. I only realized it 5 months later, I was scratching my head if it was just a weird banana and so waited some more.

They invent names of their bananas, and their exaggerated claims of cold hardiness. I am now in doubt if there is such a thing as Musa 'Texas Star' or 'Kentucky Wonder' and other such coined marketing terms. The Texas Star which they wrote as the survivor of record breaking cold spell in Texas, well it died on me on a mild winter in Zone 9. It died to the ground and never returned. My double mahoi which is rated as cold sensitive came back from the ground without a problem after that same mild winter.

and if you look at the TyTy site, it looks more like an Aberzombie add than a horticultural enterprize, hott young boys caressing bananas, citrus, figs, etc. occasionay the person in the pic is a cute kid.

im glad i didnt take them seriously.

what do you mean "sneak" on e-bay?

It is a big corm that has perhaps bloomed and fruited already, but still alive and can produce pups, that is why it is called grandmother.
