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 a great thread very imformative. Thankyou all for shairing. I have some seed been scarified and soaked for around a week in warm water. there ready to sew but wasnt sure what to do.

If I pot them into a soil and perlite mix just pressing them into the soil and very lightly covering with some mosit perlite and place in my airing cupord were water tank is it sits at 30C do you think it should work and do the job of germinating them?

Kind regards
Steve

seems good , "Ensete Ventricosum sprouting!" thread has a good source of informations too.

As long as you have 30c and you can preserve the percentage of humidity in the pot(s), they will germinate.

How many seeds do you have in this try?

There will be 10 seeds in 3 trays (sealed plastic tubs)
5 seeds in another.
4 difrent types of banana altogether.

10 Ensete Glaucum
10 musa Velutina
10 musa zebrina
5 chinese banana got them free lol

Im glad what i mention seems about right. i like the idea of just covering with moist perlite as it will make it easyer for me to move it aside to look see if there is any movement in the tubs.

It will amaze me if any grow ive been wanting to grow and worrying i cant do it for ages and after getting the seed and soaking them for a week in warm water and scarifing some of each they still feel and seem very hard like bullets. So how they manage to grow is mind bogling to me.

Yes ive seen the Ensete Ventricosum sprouting! read though and posted on there. all the info is good and very re asuring i just liek to work out how i will atempt to do it and see what others think incase its not a good idea etc.

Im just soooo hoping somthing grows even 1 of each and id be delighted!

regards
Steve.
