Default Musaceae seeds

I think I may have posted this earlier, but I just updated with better titles that are readable. Its just samples of different Musaceae seeds all next to eachother. Some species show considerable variation between seeds, so you may see some differences when looking at your own seeds. Also, many species look the same or very similar, so keep that in mind. There are a few species I've tried to grow that did not make it into this picture unfortunately.

PS- The M. itinerans variety was given to me as var. xishuangbannaensis, I just couldn't fit it on the page! The 2 different E. ventricosum are from different sources, and as you can see, this species is quite variable.

Very nice Gabe!
I'm saving all old and germinated seeds as well, so maybe I can folow your example one day!
P.S. Did you actually get the basjoo seeds to germinate?
Kind regards,
