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.

It always seems to be from the same seed scammer in China. I got fed up reading feedback from people who'd been duped into buying these, whether it be rainbow tomatoes, bananas, potatoes or oranges, so I now put a little bit of one star feedback on Amazon together with a warning to buyers, and a suggestion to Amazon to stop it happening. I appreciate that the pictures are so ridiculous that most people should see it as a joke, but lots are still wasting their hard-earned money on this nonsense, and I'm surprised Amazon and Ebay don't exercise their notorious axe and close them down.

I agree!! It used to rub me bad the wrong way. I would report them left and right. They never get removed or deleted?!?! Maybe they are fooling the Amazon and EBay people?? It is sad! If you look at sold auctions they actually sell ALOT!!! I guess ppl say well it's only $2. But those $2 add up and your getting the scammer rich! Pretty soon he will be selling Rainbow Black Pepper!!

I bought some before I joined. after being told they weren't banana seeds I planted them any ways. figured I had bought them might as well see what comes up that and the cavendish seeds and the red banana seeds. nothing did. just as well I don't see a site for grass id.

I see a great opportunity for some good clean fun here send them a message through ebay
saying that they made a mistake and sent you some chinus grassus maxamus seeds by mistake but thats ok as you were able to resell them for $90.00 per seed and you would bee interested in several hundred pounds however your cash flow is short but if they would ship you 100 lbs of chinus grauusus maxamus seed you would resell them and send them 50
% of the money

you can get spray paint that peels. then you can get your pic and eat em to. coarse you'll have to work twice as hard to peel yu nana!

thought about buying some rainbow banana seeds from the site that shows pics of actual banana seeds to see what comes up but the seeds are probably as old as my baby moccasins
