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 first attempts at seed germination

my first attempt was in soil and covered with plastic although i opted to put them on the roof for extra heat...may have been too much heat
nothing has popped up from those flats so far

trying to not get excited yet but i saw this today:



after reading some threads by forum member Lau i tried wet paper towel in plastic containers

they are velutina seeds

That looks promising, keep us posted. I am considering trying the same thing with some of the seeds I have had in seed mix for several months so I am very interested to see what kind of success you have.
