Default Re: Ensete Glaucum - first try sowing banana

A small update on my first try.

About 1/3 of my 50 seeds have germinated using the method in the first post.

When the roots were about 1-2 cm i transplanted the seed to a coco coir jiffy pellet. After transplanting i kept the coco pellet in a dark propagation box (temperature shifting from ~15-30 deg. C) until the seedling was 2-6 cm high.
After reaching that height, the pellets with the still white seedlings are moved to a window sill in a room with a temperature at approximately 20 deg C.

Most of the seedling do fine, and turn green and start to fold out the first leaves - but some of the smaller ones do not grow and start to turn brown, and look sort of transparent.

Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Is the small seedling simply to small to be taken out of the propagation box? Does it look like over-watering? Damping Off? To cold?
