      Musa Basjoo

      So I bought what is supposed to be a basjoo hardy banana, but I am seeing a little red coloring on the leaf. I thought Basjoo was green colored only? This is the second time I have tried to buy Basjoo (different sellers each time) and I think I received something else... Can anyone answer this?

      I planted it in the ground and so I don't want it to die if its not hardy...so odd and frustrating!
      What do you think?

      I had a Blood Banana Zebrina Rojo Red Musa plant for years. What color are the stems and the under side of the leaf showing color?
      Mine had red stem and red coloring on the bottom of the leaf. They will grow in zones 8-11. I am in zone 7b so I took mine inside in the winter.

      I have never seen any red like that in my musa basjoo plants. Maybe it is a hybrid of some kind?

      Sorry, but I have not noticed any red, but I will check on the plants tomorrow. The tallest ones are about 12 feet high now. Here are pics from last year when the grew to about 20 feet high. That is the length of the pipe in the pics.

      Frank has a Professional Marketplace here on Koiphen. You can check on the link below to see or ask him if he has any for sale. I have received several plants for him over the years and they all arrive in great shape & do well.

      Yes, I bought a couple of lotuses from him over the years. One of them is about to bloom. :D
      I just didn't think to ask him if he sells Basjoo before I went on ebay...

      I checked my Musa Basjoo bananas today and I cannot find any leaves with red in them. Here are some pics.

      Ugh! I am so annoyed. This is the second time this has happened to me.
