Re: Germinating Musa Velutina
 
I had a whole bunch of velutina seeds that didn't germinate over the winter even with the assistance of a seed heating mat. HOWEVER, the seeds decided to germinate when I threw them into my compost pile. The pstems are about 6 inches high in about a month.

No scarification, no soaking, nothing but heat was all I attempted indoors. It seems neglect and mother nature can do a better job than me!

I am finding velutina sprouting in compost piles all around my house. They are now my tallest weeds .....

I bought 10 seeds and the seller said to expect 50% germination at best.

I let them soak in water for over two weeks (I forgot about them) and 6 have sprouted :-)

Congrats, the others may sprout too on a later schedule.

Dont do like me and plant other things in the same pot!
