This is my favorite banana plant, by far. I love the coloring! I just had to share. This one is in full sun causing some burning of the chlorophyll deficient areas. Once it produces a few pups I plan to transplant one to a shady area and see how it does. I currently have a California gold in that location and it is rather stunted from lack of sun, but otherwise healthy. I'm hoping the Florida will do well there and avoid some of the burning (these may never fruit in that spot from lack of sun depending on how they take the winter).

Some of my other bananas doing well in the Florida heat and humidity. Last one is the stunted California gold.

You can't see the variegated leaves very well in that picture I just noticed. They are striking green and white. I just love the typical feel of bananas.
