Yes, it is much larger...however, blood banana is s small variety
it only grows to 7 feet...many varieties of banana grow to 20 feet
or taller : > )

Mushybanna:

Thanks! I'm sure your plant will do very well.

Actually, this Ensete is less than half the size of the
previous posted Ensete. I guess it appears larger
because it doesn't have a lot of other plants around it.
