Default Variegated Synthetic Hybrid Bananas

When I started breeding bananas I had no idea it was going to be this easy or this colorful.

Top photo is of some offshoots removed from one of the larger variegated seedlings at my breeding facility.

I'm going to be needing lots of names so if anyone has some cool names Post it.



Some small variegated seedlings.

Thanks, if I use the name Golden Sunrise on any of these Variegated Synthetic Hybrids I'll send you one of the plants for free.

This goes for anyone that posts a name.

Texas Tiger!

I always plant my seeds in the center of the pot. Normally my pups are up in one side of a pot like that. I would be all confused looking for them.

So many seedlings! All my time breeding and attempting to breed ive never had a single variegated seed! Although a parent was variegated.

I will have to go back and re-read how random mutation works in plants....

Anyone try radiating their seeds? Take a three smoke detectors and put the seeds next to the radioactive element, then put one detector on top and one beneath, and they get quite a dose (not sure if it is a mutating type of radiation, but I wold guess that most radiation would mutate).

Other than jumping up and down for joy (or going nuts), any experience with same? I am sure there are articles on irradiated bananas (for sure on other seeds as people have been radiating them for years).

The position of a banana plant inside of a pot has no bearing on whether it was grown from seed or a vegetative cutting. A banana grown by seed does not have the cut mark that a vegetative cutting would have showing where it was separated from the mother plant.

Just in case anyone else was confused by the positioning of the seedling, I included some photos of it's last inspection. The technique I use to grow seedlings is to fill the bottom half of the pot with a nutrient rich potting mix and the upper half where the seedling is planted is filled with clean coarse sand. Sand has great drainage and aeration qualities and the seedlings roots will quickly reach the nutrient rich potting mix below.

Inspecting the seedling is very simple because the sand can be poured out, which makes the rhizome completely visible. Because the roots are flexible the seedling can be moved around which gives me more room on one side of the pot to pour the sand back in. Moving the seedling does not negatively affect it's growth because the roots that are secured in the potting mix were never disturbed.

Variegation in seedlings definitively appears to be random but certainly not rare. Basically the more seeds planted the more variegated seedlings will be produced. Gabe sent me photos of the variegated seedlings he had produced so the best advice would be to increase the number of seeds planted. Not every cross, variegated or not, is going to grow properly but this seedling has shown an exceptional growth rate.

The name of this Variegated Synthetic Hybrid Banana is ...

The Variegated Omaha.
