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.

That's great! I hope your little seedling is a musella sprout. I guess these seeds are hard to germinate. Keep us updated.

I just left the Perrieri seeds in the tupperware with the top in place. There is still condensation on the inside of the lid, so I am just going to forget about it for another month or two.
I sprinkled cinnamon on the surface to help keep any mold or fungus at bay, so we will see. Might try embryo rescue next. Just got 100 more fresh seeds.

I started some Musa Lasiocarpa seeds last winter (February) and just soaked them in Smoke Seed Primer for 24 hrs and planted them in Pro Mix BX with a reptile heater under them 24/7 & saran wrap on top of the pan. I got sprouts in about 3 weeks. This was my first time with Musa seeds.

I have Musa Lasiocarpa, Veluntina, and Darjeeling Giant Musa that I didn't manage to kill off. I started 40 seeds, 4 kinds, 10 seeds each and about 35 sprouted but I killed several due to inexperience and impatience. I'm ready to try again this winter. I hope it wasn't just beginners luck.

From which source did you get your seeds?
