Got this clone a few years ago from US as very small dying plant but it  bounce back from the root.  Clone from late Dennis Hastings collection...

Bananito is a beautiful clone and in my opinion, worthy of cultivar status given its unusual pitcher shape. The dark colouration when grown in conditions conducive to such is definitely an added bonus to this cultivar.

Great looking dark clones dimitar and very nice plants. Only ever grown, indeed even seen, the typs. If you ever have some spare 'bits' I'd like to give them a go! Grown typ for 20 odd years, always found it fairly easy if a bit susceptible to the occasional grey mould if kept too wet over the colder months.
