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 How color variable is Thai Black from seed, got some germination?

I already have one Thai Black but would like a small forest of them. I got some Thai Black seeds as a bonus for ordering 60 Musa Griersonii which continue to elude me lol. Out of 10 seeds I had 3 Thai Black germinate today after 2 weeks exactly, which I think is pretty darn good, especially considering I tried to germinate 50 once with no luck. I recommend Mark Davies seeds in the UK on ebay by the way. I have had at least some germination out of all the seeds I have ordered from him, and expect Griersonii will show itself in another week or two if it's anything like Sikkimensis. I germinated them lying, not buried on a bed of sphagnum moss with the micropylar plug facing up, in a covered container to cut down on mold, after being soaked 1 day, it seems to do the trick. Daytime temps of 80F, night time temps of 60F. Anyway my question is, how variable is the dark coloration on Thai Black from seed, are the black clones we see for sale as TC plants just a darker than usual selection?

Today number 4 germinated out of 10, must have been pretty fresh seed.
