Joy Musa Ornata 'Royal Purple' Bloom!!!

All hello! I have one more flowering and it it has appeared Musa Ornata ' Royal Purple '. I have bought its seeds as Musa Paradisiaca. Probably seeds have been mixed in shop or at assemblage. I at first assumed that it is one of types of Musa acuminata, but was mistaken. It it is possible to define this hour with the big confidence, at flowering that it Musa Ornata ' Royal Purple '. Has passed all some weeks as I have landed it from a pot in the earth. Didn't think at all that it will start to blossom. Here pictures of this event.

Hi Jack! From the moment of germination of a seed and before flowering has transited 2,5 years. It all this time grew in a pot, then when I have transplanted it in the earth in one month it has blossomed. Best regards!
