Default Musa ingens and other large bananas

Hi all,
I am very interested in knowing if by now anybody had any success with growing M. ingens? At least to sprout them and grow them awhile.
I read so many people tried for years and nothing happened.
Also would be interested if there is any new knowledge of successfully growing them in lowland tropics?
I am living in Thailand and would love to try them anyway, even though I have heard they don't do good in the lowland tropics.
But trying makes smarter.
Have ordered some seeds now and see if I can get them to sprout.

Alternatively, which other banana could I try that growsto 40ft upwards?
I have got some M. itinerans Blue Burmese that I have dug out from a mountain and so far they are growing fine here. Last week we had 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
So if they can grow here maybe I can also get others to grow.
Trachycarpus fortunei also doing ok but growing slower than in Europe.

Thanks for any answers.
