I do not have enough seeds to grow in large quantities, not to mention the very low rate of germination of wild bananas.
Can I store their pollen grains to pollinate the mother plant when it flowers?

If you get one of each species you can split off pups to start separate mats. Short answer on pollen, no you cant. Long answer is some research has shown some positive results.

I will try with the biggest amount of seed possible. I also hear the researching about pollen, maybe so difficult.
