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 my first banana germination

Until now I have never grown bananas from seed.
I bought, a month ago, a few seeds, and some of them I got from a colleague from the Croatian Palm forums.
Here are the results after 3 weeks.
