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 Finally Ensete Glaucum!

Finally Ensete Glaucum, I had 2 seeds germinate out of 10 planted. I would of been happy even with 1 but 2 is better, going strong and put out their 1st leaf too. . Still hopefully I might get a couple more. I also have Musa Itinerans seeds sprouting, way to soon too tell on that one. Fingers crossed!

Happy growing,
Darla

Hi Darla,
Congratulations on your two seedlings, I just clicked your flic link and I'm so impressed with your collection, what medium are you using in the pots it looks very sandy?
Cheers Darryl

Thanks Darryl for the nice compliment, I use a mixture of sand and perlite on most all my young potted plants.

Happy growing,
Darla
