Default Starting seeds in a Dollar Tree Seed Tray

I am trying to germinate different seeds I bought off eBay.
I have not had much luck in the past with many orders.
I finally got the banana seeds, but only got 5 seeds.
Banana seeds are a little expensive it seems.
I drafted up very small 1"x1'x2" paper seed starter pots.
I cut them out and used clear tape to secure it after folding.
I have done this before. I can just plant the paper pot in the soils after started without disturbing the roots.
My first attempt was with tabasco pepper seeds.
It work great. But for them I just wrapped strips of paper around a salt shaker and filled with soil. no bottoms.
Anyway, I put these in a Dollar Tree seed tray. I just keep it moist with a Dollar Tree spray bottle.

I am not normally this neat, but it is so hot outside I took time while in the AC.

The four seeds I am planting are:
Musa sikkimensis BANANA

Moso Bamboo

Dinosaur Gunnera

1000 Moldovan 456 Tobacco Seeds (look tropical to me)
Sometimes I just want to sit back and watch the wind move the leaves...
