Default Re: Birth of a New Hybrid Musa: Musa sp. aff. aurantiaca (Trebrown seeds) x velutina

I never expected those seeds to germinate. I just didn't have the heart to throw them away! I wasn't sure if I'd ever get the conditions to make that cross again. I'm glad I kept them, and even more glad that I re-hydrated them! I think there is still a lot that we don't know about germinating Musa seeds, how long they can remain viable while dormant, etc.

My main concern right now is keeping the seedlings alive for the next few months. I have grow lights, humidifiers, etc., so hopefully I can give them what they need until spring.
