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.

Nope never heard of King Kong apart from the big ape that climbs the Empire State Building. I doubt very much that they are related to Mekong Giant. As far as I am aware the seeds for Mekong are not available.

Okay so I got the seed and the supposed King Kong, its real name is Musa Balbisiana. Any info on this type ?
It sounds like its a old world variety, considered to be a wild banana

I also got some Musa Sikkimensis

I just planted mine. Musa Balbasiana Atia Black. Bought seeds from Mark Davies on ebay. To me plants look the same as Thai Black.

Let us know how you get in with those as I've never been able to get them to germinate.
