So, I went to Lowe's to get something useful and not buy another
plant, and bang --- there it was -- in all its beauty -- a banana
plant in a one gallon container. It had no useful tag, except the
price tag that merely alluded to its origin: Banana Super.
Well super it was, but I don't know what cultivar. I always get sucked
into buying these unknown plants because they are only 15 bucks or so.
The sales clerks were helpful, but didn't know anything else.
Does anyone have a vague idea what type of banana this is or what type
of banana's are sold in this fashion? I won't post a picture because
it is just a two foot plant with typical leaves of green with a hint
of red on the trunk. I promise to return to the home store and buy the
paint later. Actually applying the paint will come much later.
