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.

Hey, I did the same several years ago when I did the velutina seeds distribution. Live and learn. I was able to salvage 11 seeds out of the 20, so I do have something to try. Again, anyone have any recommendations with getting musa seeds to germinate? I have not had very good success in the past with musa seeds with the exception of my velutina seeds. Sorry, dasycarpus?!?!?!

Well, I hate to "burst" anyone's bubble, but all of mine are intact except one! Thanks again, this should be interesting. Will keep you updated with germination or lack there of. We all know how finicky banana seeds are.

Got mine yesterday... got 12 survivors. I got them going in my setup now... hopefully I will have results in a week or so. My sikkimensis have been popping up within 5-7 days hope it is the same with these

Do we all mind sharing info on how you planted your seeds?


Well I planted mine 1/2in deep, mist the dirt for water, heating pad on the bottem, and I have now built a minature greenhouse inside just for seed sprouting, and I try to keep it at 80F....(47C)....... What about YOU?




Hope we all have sucess!

Default Re: Who want to germinate some very cool seeds?

I'm from Malaysia and would like to explore if there would be anyone here that can send me some banana seed for my banana trial plot. Currently in Malaysia we cultivate them via transplant or tissue culture, and when it comes for commercial farm it will be more cost effective if we could grow them via seed. Is there anyone here that can send me some seedling so that I could give a try on 1 acre trial plot.

regards
SSS
