Default Re: Ensete Glaucum - first try sowing banana

I just germinated a batch of Glaucums, so far a month after the 2 day seed soak, I have 20 germinated and transplanted out of 32 seeds.

I am very happy with the results, I ordered some from ENSETE glaucum "Snow Banana" Exotic Seeds a few years back, they never germinated, I gave up after six months. So this year I ordered from MUSA ENSETE GLAUCUM SEEDS, as you can see in the picture on the ad that the plant shown appears to be a Ventricosum instead of a Glaucum, however the plant they describe seems to be a Glaucum, time will tell as I have a ton of them growing now.

Good luck and keep em moist until they pop.
