Question Wine red spots on the leafs of young Musa Praying Hands and Musa Thousand Fingers

Hi,

some months ago I got Praying Hands and Thousand Fingers and planted them out in my yard some weeks ago. I noticed wine red spots of the leaves of my Musa Thousand Fingers and Musa Praying Hands. These spots are known from Musa Dwarf Cavendish and aucuminata cultivars. Are my plants genuine Praying Hands and Thousand Fingers or one scam or fake from the seller at Mercado Livre?

Also my Musa ingens has wine red spots on its leaves, it could not be Musa ingens, probably Williams or Cavendish Giant. Also my Ae Ae Variegated has no striped leaves, only green with wine red spots like Dwarf Cavendish, it is one fake from the seller, but I can identify it later when they are fruiting to see which cultivars they really are.

With the best
Joachim

Some varieties have spots when young that disappear with age. Have never seen them on Praying Hands or Thousand Fingers.

My Praying Hands are solid green even when young.
Very similar to Orinoco. No wine stains.

Hi,

thanks for your infos, my plants are probably the fake and not the right like my AeAe Variegated and Musa ingens from Mercado Livre. Today I wrote one email to my Brazilian friend Helton who also has Thousand Fingers and Praying Hands to ask him whether his plants are the genuine. If his plants are the genuine Thousand Fingers and Praying Hands, he will send me some pups.

With the best
