Musa sikkimensis

I am looking for Musa sikkimensis, does anyone know where to get one, or some seeds?

I just don't trust many of the places selling them or the seeds.

Any recommendations are great.

Re: Looking for Dwarf Iholena and Rose

Re: Planted a Basjoo Banana three weeks ago leaves browning

If I may,

New plants, especially purchased from a nursery, frequently have leaves dry and die back like this. It is usually the older leaves. If the new leaf is also browning you may have a...

Re: Einkorn Wheat

I planted mine for winter growth because that is when it rains here and that is when the grass grows in the hills. I cannot say when it would be best for you as I am not an expert in growing wheat. I...

Re: Sweet Sue papaya

That may be it. Seems like a good candidate. It sounds like it takes frost fairly well.

I also wanted to try that royal star papaya, it sounds good.
