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.

My notes say these were less than a month old Musa Velutina when the photo was taken. I don't know the exact age but that helps narrow it down.

What did you do and how long did it take to germinate the M. velutina?

Allen they were simply put ontop of multi P with vermiculite on top and then put into a propogator in jan 07 and left to get on with it. I don't do the 10 hours on and 14 off as I don't have a timer and I would for get to put them back on if I turned them off at night.It looks to be 100% germination too

Sorry they were soaked for a week in the prop with prop temp water.

Thanks Mark. Mine have only been in since mid February. I may get some germination in the next few weeks.

I find Velutina the easiest by far to germinate. I wish they would all grow that easy.
