Just did a web search and there are only 3 entries all started by Gilian, so I'd say there is a fair chance there is no such Ensete as livingstonatium :)
Best regards

Google auto-completion can be annoying at times, especially when it changes the words you're typing, but sometimes it's helpful :)

I am very impressed with that Bananaking. It looks so much like a glaucum in some respects but it the cut leave bases and the yellow tinges that tell the two apart. Can i ask where you got your seeds from please? could be one to try next year as i am going to try growing quite a lot of banana plants from seed. What is the minimum temps they like?

My initial thought was it was "a marketing con".

The very rare seed is available on Rare Palm Seeds Aaron, but to be honest, at initial glance it is 'glaucum', and unless you tell people to get within 2 feet of it they will still say "glaucum".

I suppose that makes me an enthusiast, rather than a collector. :lol:
