Re: What did I do wrong with my baby bananas?

What variety? Where did you get them? How long have you had them?

Re: Cold stratification after planting?

I think that sounds about right, I put mine in the fridge for about the same length of time.

I really must get hold of a UV light.

Re: Bare Root Musa Var Tanee

Thought so. Give it bottom heat, hold back on the water, keep out of the sun, no 100watt grow lights either. They will grow new roots first followed by top growth. Once you see top growth then give...

Re: Shops, nurseries... in Europe

Re: How to kill fungus and bacteria on seed before germination

I have to agree with Gabe; no need to sterilise. The seed wouldn't be sterilised in nature. I have started to use straight multipurpose compost.

If a seed shows signs of mould straight away then it...

Re: Rolling up the leaves of the seedlings

Are they Thai Black by any chance? That happens a lot with my Thai Black seedlings usually when they are stressed in some way - could be an issue with the roots. If you lift them and see if they are...

Re: Musa Itinerans var. Gigantea

I don't want to burst your bubble, but they aren't germinating, that white stuff is rot. When germinating the plug in the middle of the seed lifts up and the radical appears.

I'm not sure what the...

Re: Paranoid about my only germinated seed...

They look OK to me. It does look like a Sikkimensis rather than a coccinea, but you can tell from the shape of the seeds.

The first leaf often dries out depending on the type of light environment,...

Re: Hardy Bananas for UK? (list of species)

You can't get Mekong Giant in the UK as no-one is TCing it. I did try it when it was available and it wasn't great to be honest.

To answer your questions about Yangste River; it doesn't have a Latin...

Re: Hardy Bananas for UK? (list of species)

Are you looking for fruiting varieties? I think you have pretty much all that is available.

They need a bit more light they look very stretched; they shouldn't need support.
