This is NOT a variegated florida banana. I would
bet your from Nigeria. Do you have any other Variegated
banana plants that aren't really variegated?

Bottom photo is of two French Red Plantains

Top photo is the Variegated Red Stem Florida rhizome.

Here's another Florida photo.

After posting the wolfebc florida photo I decided to pot the variegated florida up and it will be available for trade in about 30 days.

I also potted up a nice little variegated dwarf namwa with a good size wolfe pup that's available for trade now.

If interested send a pm.

So carefully looking at your posts it looks like you bought a french
Red from yourself and included a free one. Then had some kind of customer service appreciation draw and decided to give yourself a free variegated florida that you shipped to yourself.
No one in their right mind would give away a free variegated florida
And ship it for free.
You can post all the pics you want, this proves nothing.
You are obviously a business selling banana plants. I despise
Your deceptive advertising practices and for that reason, i would
Never buy from you and discourage others from dealing with you.

We grow thousands of variegated bananas and have shipped hundreds of them to org members. Banana plants don't cost anything and sending free plants is just not a big deal.

When the USDA wants to add another variegated banana to their Tropical Research Station collection we send it to them for free and would never think of asking them to pay for the shipping.

If you don't have anything cool for trading then $40 or best offer.

I'll also make available a variegated Manini.

Price will range from $25 to $50 depending on size.

I'll share photos of what variegated plants are inside soon.

It was a long day of packing bananas but it's great to have 19 bananas find their new homes yesterday.

1 Blue Java Ice Cream


1 Beautiful Variegated Dwarf Nam Wa


And 17 Variegated Manini to 4 homes

I was extremely happy with this trade and added 4 free variegated Manini for a total of 14

Trading plants is great
