Default Re: Ensete Glaucum - first try sowing banana

Ive never tried it with saltpeter solution.

When I tried it I filed it untill I exposed
the meaty embryo-just enough to allow water
to penetrate the hard outer coat.
You dont need to remove the shell completely.
You can try and experiment with different methods...you do have 50 seeds.

BTW once that tree flowers, it dies.
Let the flower hang/mature so you can harvest all the seeds.
Mine flowered after 3 years.

Anyways, the link is there.
