The one in the picture germinated on a heat mat set at about 7 hours on and 17 hours off in a room that got down to the mid 60's F. I had them in an uncovered tray mixed with 75% coco peat, and 25% perlite.
I also ordered 100 seeds from banana tree dot com, and placed them in a LARGE zip lock baggie (coco peat, perlite), and set them outside in a shady spot on my deck. About 25 germinated within a month. I don't use SMALL zip lock baggies anymore, and have had alot better success.
What methods are you using?
