Talking variegated banana seeds

I have a question, can two different clones of variegated basjoo cross pollenate and produce seeds that germinate into variegated plants, the reason i ask is because i believe "fuji-yama variegata" is a different clone to my plant, i think my plant is cloned from basjoo sakhalin it is a stockier plant than normal basjoo, and has thicker leaves and petiole wings, if the variegation is caused by a virus, would the virus then be present in the seeds, i have tried propergating normal basjoo seeds before, but because they were from the same cloned material they were not fertile, i would be gratfull for any advice , all the best, Tony.

Default Re: variegated banana seeds

I think that it is possible, but not all seedlings would be variegated. There is a good chance that a percentage of them would come up variegated. Do you have any pictures of your variegated basjoo to share with the board ?
