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.

that's great! what did you do to insure that the seeds would grow? I started a thread on giant nepals and am sure its somewhat similar.

I have had 18 out of 50 germinate so far. I transferred them to 3 inch pots after they sprouted, and hopefully they will break the surface in a few days. I looked in one pot under the mix by carefully spraying the soil back with a spray bottle, and they are growing and have roots so should not be long. I germinated them by laying them on a bed of damp sphagnum moss uncovered after soaking for 24 hours, in a covered container. Kept them 80 degrees for 5 hours each day, and 60 the rest of the time. Had 4 out of 10 Thai Black germinate this way also, both in two weeks.
