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.

Cool Need a little help with seed germination

I am thinking about trying to grow some bananas from seed again. Now the first time I tried it, it didnít work. I used salt peter in the water and soaked it for about 3 days. I then planted them in potting mix. I then put the containers right out on the deck in the summer sun. None of them ever grew. So what is the trick to doing it right? Do I have to use a heat mat? Any advice?! Thanks so much in advance for any help!

Fresh seeds solves most problems. Normal potting mix, some heat and you can cover pots with transparent plastic bags to keep humidity.
