Default Re: Growing ornamental banana's from seed ? worth it ?

I have, many years ago with the excellent advice from a member ( Tang ) who has since passed on, I'm sure there are members here that remember him, he was a good man. It was my first Zebrina, she lasted a few years until we had a harsh winter and I had the heat on in my apartment constantly and I over watered her, it broke my heart.
Is it worth it yes, it may or may not put out fruit but the satisfaction of it growing is worth it

We have grown a lot this spring from seed, along with ensete. Very easy, very quick to germinate and grow like wild. They are now all in the 2 foot stage, some almost three. Sikkimensis, acuminata, unknown, Ensete (2 different)

With seed it more of a educational journey.
I did seed the first time this winter and I learned a few things about the banana process.
