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 Musa yunnanensis

How difficult is Yunnanensis to germinate? I ordered 50 seeds from a dealer I have had good luck with germination in the past.

I ordered them from Mark Davies seeds, I have had sikkimensis and glaucum germinate from there. I hope I can get at least a few to sprout.
