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 Is this normal?

Today I dampened the paper towel I was soaking my musa sikkimensis seeds in with a little willow water. I came back later and the micropylar plug thing of one fell out. I was expecting something to be sticking out when this happened but its just white underneath. Is this seed germinating or can a plug just fall out and the seed die?

siege,

Both cases are possible. Carry on with the germination routine and time will tell.

Its very slow getting around, I don't think it was ready yet, but it is putting out a root. This is my first Banana germination!
