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.

Although I'm by no means an expert, and there are plenty of other people here who are more experienced than me, I've recently had some success in germinating Ensete Ventricosum seeds. You can have a look at what I did under "Ėnsete Ventricosum spouting!" in the Germination Forum. I'm in the UK.
