Re: New banana species at RPS
I have had no possibiliies to visit in the forum for a while as I have been in remote areas in China for research on wild bananas. Now I am based on Guangzhou for a week.
What is coming to RPS seeds they got locations of the Bornean Musa species by following the GPS position which were given in my articles. They are correctly identified as I checked the photos which they sent to me for identification.
It is truethat M.sakaiana looks very much an Australimusa and the section will be combined to the section Callimusa in the new classification.
The seeds are floating as they have dried up. However, they can dry up to 85 % and still to be viable. What is coming to Bornean Musa species seeds they are very difficult to germinate as they are going to dormant very fast.
