Starting seeds in a Dollar Tree Seed Tray
 
I am trying to germinate different seeds I bought off eBay.
I have not had much luck in the past with many orders.
I finally got the banana seeds, but only got 5 seeds.
Banana seeds are a little expensive it seems.
I drafted up very small 1"x1'x2" paper seed starter pots.
I cut them out and used clear tape to secure it after folding.
I have done this before. I can just plant the paper pot in the soils after started without disturbing the roots.
My first attempt was with tabasco pepper seeds.
It work great. But for them I just wrapped strips of paper around a salt shaker and filled with soil. no bottoms.
Anyway, I put these in a Dollar Tree seed tray. I just keep it moist with a Dollar Tree spray bottle.






I am not normally this neat, but it is so hot outside I took time while in the AC.


The four seeds I am planting are:
Musa sikkimensis BANANA



Moso Bamboo



Dinosaur Gunnera



1000 Moldovan 456 Tobacco Seeds (look tropical to me)

i like to smoke cigars. so does the moldovan make a good smoke?

so, well, i have read that palm seeds are very, very hard to grow, i do not know........... possibly a tad bit harder to gro than a banana seed.....

i once got some seeds from texas [e-bay], the man must have smoked cigars because the package had burn marks on it. :ha: the story does not end there, one of the seeds was cracked, well long story short, i thru it in a pot and it grew. it was snow banana. ensete glaucum. even fruited,

luck my friend. keep us posted.

I am seeing results!
So far I have had some of the bamboo seeds sprout (1st Time ever for me)
And I have some tobacco seeds sprouting.
I keep them moist with a spray bottle.
No banana sprouts yet, but I am being patient.
How long should it take for them tp sprout?

Are you using a heat mat? Sometimes that helps.
