Decorative bananas

This musa plant is quite small. Less than two feet high and its fruit, the bananas, are tiny little things. No more than two inches long. I only have one of these plants, but I plan on saving the seeds for planting. Sort of odd that the banana, as we know it, has only vestiges of seeds. It can only be propagated by planting off-shoots. These decorative bananas have some very well formed seeds, which germinate quite well.
