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.

One thing I forgot to mention is the M.sikkimensis X paradisica seems to be pretty touchy about transplanting too soon after germination. I made that mistake and lost a bunch, but alot of the survivors were doubles.
I also found that the temps were pretty low(high 50's to 80's) for germination, and the M.balbisiana seemed to prefer a little higher temps.
The seeds aren't brand spankin new, just stored well.
