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.

Hi and welcome triple S...If you can wait still March i'll come to Malaysia for a one month trip..So I can bring you some seeds ...But is impossible for you to collect some in the forest?

a guy from a nursery that I know, gave me a method for germinating; after having dipped the seeds slightly , he splits them before potting.He has ensured that he did not need to vary the temperature and it had no fungal problems

WOOT WOOT! Glad someone got one to germinate! It was disappoint to hear so many seeds got mutilated in the mail (and then weren't growing). Glad to hear we have a winner! *drops confetti/balloons*

It took two months for the seed to sprout. Only one seed has germinated so far.

It's looking nice and healthy, Tony!

Don't forget to turn your camera on "Macro Mode" when you take these up close pictures, though. Then hopefully we'd be able to see it a little better.
