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 Ensete sp. 'Kluay Pa'

Hi all - I planted some 'Kluay Pa' seeds in mid January and the other day when I looked in there was a seedling coming up!!! However, I'm a bit dubious as to what it is! The seeds were certainly Kluay Pa, but I'm a little worried that it is a Canna seedling from an escapee Canna seed, as it looks quite similar to a Canna seedling! I know it's a bit early to tell really, but I'll be potting it on today so hopefully it'll get going so I can find out. Here are the pics so far;

Will keep you posted, fingers crossed it is a Kluay Pa!!

Since Cannas and bananas are related, there may be quite a lot of similarity between seedlings. Best of luck!
