Musa sp 'Florida' variegated banana
The Musa sp 'Florida' variegated banana is considered by some collectors to be the most striking variegated plant. The foliage appear almost painted with variegation of emerald green, mint, and pure white. If you are lucky enough to grow in outdoor conditions, you will be blessed with variegated fruit as well!
The USDA has banned importing banana plants from overseas, this is a local Florida variety that is very desired.
Grow variegated Musa in bright indirect light. Water when the topsoil dries out a couple of inches, do not allow the plant to completely dry, but do not overwater, or you will cause root rot. As the plant is maturing, you will need to keep the potting media slightly moist.
The leaves do eventually slit and you can expect some minor browning along the edges, which is purely cosmetic.
