Default Banana seeds or corms wanted



Hello exotic-plant-friends. I started recently with the hobby of growing palm trees from seeds, later i discovered the passion for banana trees. Right now i'm discovering this website. And it's a fantastic resource of information for musa and ensete species! There isn't any comparable forum existing right now.

I live in Belgium. I have some musa basjoos, musa cavendish and dwarf cavendish. Alsow i have a sikkimensis that i have grown myself from seed.

I'm wondering if anybody in Europe have a spare corm ( or maybe some seeds)
of a specie i don't have already? Maybe we can work something out.

Thank you very much !

Welcome palmpje, update your profile so members can see where you are from as some places have restriction on trading live plants.

Excuse me? If was used in there? I AM gonna make it flower. However I doubt it will be pure Rubra then naturally, cause I have also Sakhalin of precisely the same height and age and will get precisely the same height and age normal basjoo soon. So the chance of getting 3 blooms of totally different basjoos is... high. But I will do my best to pollinate manually and make as many pure 'Rubra' and 'Sakhalin' as possible.

Thumbs up Re: Banana seeds or corms wanted

Thank you 'banana-friends' for taking the time to leave me a 'welcome'. It's quit exiting to find out that you are not the only garden-banana-crazy nut out there ( no disrespect ).

Dalmationsoap : if everything is ok know, you should be able to PM me. If not, let me know in this post.

Jack Daw : if you would have some spare corm later on, maybe we can trade a corm. In that way we would both be happy. Till that time, i may have already a pup from my musa lasiocarpa ( if that would intrest you ).

I still have to do a lot of catching up, because you guys posted a lot of interesting things in this forum. Bastards ! know i have to spend days reading all this

Just catch up with other interesting info, lasiocarpa is beauty in the garden, but I specialize in collecting edible varieties (one guy with lasicarpa lives about 2km from me ). That however doesn't mean, that I won't share the pups with you in the future, I will more than gladly help you out, with seeds or corms as well. Provided that my plants will grow, arghhh .

Thanks Jack ! that really sounds great. I will put some pictures on my profile soon. So i can show you what i'm trying to do here in this small Belgian country.

I read that you collect edible species. Well Jack, my wife is actually Dominican. Every year we go to the Dominican Republic. However i can't promise anything, it's my goal to collect some little pups there that i can propagate here later on. I still have to manage to get those in my suitcase without having troubles on the airport . But if this would work out, i would be more then happy to share them with you.

Thanks for that, I will do the same when I go somewhere abroad (I want to go to Sochi region, Russia in 2 years or so and see maybe Ante down in the subtropical Croatia, or invite him for a stay, show him the city etc...).
I also have a very good friend, an interesting man in Nicaragua (he works as technical advisor to the banana crop industry there), I do not want to strip him of money on shipping, so I would rather wait until he gets back to Slovakia for his reunion (1, 2, 3 years maybe.... maybe more), give him the tour (he studied here a long time ago), a place to sleep etc. You know, he's a friend if mine...
He wanted to send me some plants, but I think that it would be much better, if he didn't spend his money at all like this. He wants to come here, so when he has the chance, we can join reunion with nanas and friendly tours.

There are also many great people from tropics here, lorax is from Ecuador (although Canadian I think), island cassie is from Dominican republic I think...
Lots and lots of interesting people here.
Well, no more words, study the site.
