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 Unexpected success

I bought seeds of musa: yunnanensis, sikkemensis, thomsonii, helens hybrid and red tiger from rare palms. After my previous attempts resulting in failure I wasnt hopeful, but I soaked the seeds in 800ppm ga3 for a day and a half. Well 5 weeks later I have had between 25 - 100 percent germination with more popping up every day. Will upload pics but very happy.

GA3 = Gibberellic Acid = A potent hormone plant growth regulator. It is used to improve plant growth and yields.......
