Default Re: Musa Itinerans var. Gigantea

Update: I spent 3 hours locating/removing the seeds. I had sterilized the soil beneath but forgot to sterilize the last handful I placed on top.

I had also read they do well when planted 1 inch below the soil, so I sterilized the soil, placed the seeds/moisture back into the jar (after cooling), and then put about 3/4" soil on the very top. I used clear cooking wrap to seal off the jar and then put the glass top onto the jar.

Now I have no worries about fungus/mold growth and I can let them sit.

I'm also getting a heating mat for them today and will use it 8 hrs per day.
