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 Now everything's ready.

I have been asking some questions in the forum - and now everything's ready!
Here are the photos of the process:

5 seeds : at first, all seeds floated. But, as I soaked them for 46 hours, 4 of them sunk.

Right after I put seeds in cases. Numbers written on caps are how many droplets of water are put, and alphabets are whether the seed in the case sunk of float. I am trying to find which condition is best for seeds to germinate.

Put some soil on top, and then sealed.

Attached all of them together to make it easier to put them somewhere, which made them look like a stick.

I am going to attach them to window to get enough heat, and this black paper will help the sunshine to be absorbed, providing heat.

Now the germination stick is complete.

Attached the stick on window - using lots of tape. I hope they would stand still, not falling, until they germinate. Bad photo




I just realized that I would have to disassemble and reassemble all the stick when one of them start to germinate. That must be a lot of work, LOL

Thank you, Soohan, This is exactly the kind of post, I would like to see more of in this forum.
I does not just tell us, what you have done, but how you did it in some detail. That makes it
repeatable by others and thereby teaches and makes your post very useful.

Thank you!
Olaf
PS: are you a scientist?

I'm glad it was helpful. And, I'm surely not a scientist, I'm just a middle school student

I am sure, you are a very good one. While your post was not up to "research grade", it was certainly
"research light". I hope, that you will chose a career in science. You certainly seem to lean that way.

Good luck with your experiment!
Olaf
