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.

Joy Success 10 Musa varities planted - 2 plants emerging so far

Four weeks ago I planted 10 banana varities in small plastic cups, three seeds per cup and placed them in a rubbermaid rack system on the back deck. I soaked the Zebrina seeds overnight but all others were directly sown. I'll document thier growth and the future seed success, cause its fun and hopefully there is interest here.

I currently have 2 Ensete Ventricosum Abysiaian shoots, one about 3 inches and another just emerging.

Varities planted (spelling =)

Ensete Ventricosum Abysiaian
Ensete SNow Banana
Musa Sikimensis Red Tiger
Musa Helen's Hybrid
Musa Darjeeling Giant
Musa Paradisiace
Musa Sikkimensis Red Flash
Ensete Kluay Pa
Musa Yunnanensis
Musa Zebrina

Had a PM with questions about seed vendor.

I bought the seeds from the ebayer seller Georgia Vines. Pretty cheap and she had combined shipping. all seeds seemed healthy and ready to rock.

Congrats southern!

Reading your success makes me feel better, as I have sown 20 seeds, half of them a month ago, the half two weeks ago, and have yet to see a single one sprout. For someone use to sowing tomato and other veggie seeds and seeing them germinate in 3-10 days, trying to get bananas to germinate is really trying!
