Hello everyone, I joined bananas,org a few months ago but never posted.
Iíve seen a lot of interesting stuff of growing bananas.
Now I have a question and maybe someone can help me regarding some seeds of Musa thomsonii (they were indicated as thomsonii at least). I had them in the coco / perlite medium for 8 month and then I put them out to check them. I couldnít see any sign of germination and put them in water for two days. After this, I found three different conditions:
1 No visible change
2 The Micropylar plug was removed and a white surface was visible
3 A yellow / brown fluid is coming out of the micropyle.
I hope I will be able to upload a picture:
For the seeds described under point 2 and 3: Are these signs of germination or are they lost and just start to rot?
I now have the seeds back in the coco / perlite medium.
