Banana Seed Germination Forum As one of the toughest seeds in the plant kingdom to figure out the keys to germination success with, this is a forum with banana seed germination tips. Please entitle posts like "Musa balbisiana," or "Musa cheesmani," etc. People would then post a reply under that heading, sharing their germination successes (and failures), what materials and methods they used, germination percentage, etc.

Default 2 stems?

Hi all,

I have a helens hybrid which I have germinated and it has split into 2 stems, is this normal?

I have added a pic in my gallery

Thanks

Could be twins.
Or two seeds were stuck together when they were planted.

There are more knowledgeable forum members whom will have a better answer once they see your post.

The plant looks very healthy though.
Where in the U.K. are you?

It definitely not 2 seeds stuck together as I sow them 1 by 1 on kitchen towel (after soaking) I'm on the south coast.

The thread could be of interest..Recently germinated E glaucum seedlings showing lateral shoots?

I've seen the same happen 2 years ago with a sikkimensis seed.
Both grew up fine and were separated when they where about 2ft in height. Unsurprisingly they were -and still are- noticably smaller than another sikkimensis that sprouted from the same batch

Both seem to be doing very well. I will separate them when they are about 2 ft high.

On another note, i bought 30 seeds and only 2 germinated! I still have the other seeds keeping them warm and damp hoping they may germinate
