NFC: Re: wild banana plants

    I claim no experience here, but remember hearing from a plant guy in Fla. 
that the wild plants he finds do not have "bananas".  They develop the 
bananas in his tanks.  At the time, he was wondering what his tanks added or 
lacked to cause this.  Also, I would suppose that the wild plants might have 
primarily floating, emersed leaves, and might look different from the 
aquarium ones that way too.  
    My point is, perhaps they are around you and hard to recognize.
    Good luck
