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.

What time of year should you order banana seeds and where or who do you order from?

Thanks Susan

Default Re: Banana Plant Seeds

They can be started anytime, I buy mine from Mark Davies seeds from the UK on Ebay. I have had 3 Musa Yunnanensis seeds sprout this last week after 2 weeks, and I have had seeds purchased from there germinate in the past also. There may be other dealers on here as well, but I have not bought from them yet. Some seeds do germinate better with temperature fluctuations though, I simulate this by placing my seed trays on top of a fluorescent light fixture that gets warm, and then placing the same trays on the floor at night. I am guessing the temperatures are in the mid 90s in the day, and in the upper 60s at night. I have sprouted the yunnanensis, and Sikkimensis, both plain green, and red tiger this way.

If you don't eat yer meat, you can't have any Banana pudding! How can you have any Banana pudding if you don't eat yer meat?!

Thanks Susan
Do an open post......I WANT SEEDS>>>>>PLEASE...
Buy now...Start now.

Many seeds you might find are the ornamental type,,,,,,,but you never know ..

You should get some good responses .

BUT..... verify the seller if you can with other peeps in the forum.....if you wish.

Do not buy something from Cincinnana that will ship from
Liberia or Kentucky.
