(Musa velutina) Lovely, small banana plants produce the most stunning, glowing, brilliant pink banana you will ever see. They are edible, but very seedy. Plants have large leaves that grow up to 24" long and add a wonderful tropical effect to your yard or patio. This species is relatively hardy, taking a few degrees of frost fairly well. Ripe fruit will start to split open when ready to eat. Showy and fun to grow! Can be hard to germinate, but is then easy to grow.

Review:

I ordered quite a few different types of seeds from this company and had at least 80% germination with all of them, except for these pink banana seeds. I used grow lights and seedling heat mats and couldn't get a single one to grow at all. This was surprising since I had read that they were fairly easy to grow from seed. I even had a friend get some pink banana seeds from another company and do the same thing I did with grow lights and heat mats and they at least had a 60% germination rate.

Review:

I am pretty successful in germinating seeds. I was not able to germinate a single pink banana seed. I use heat mats, seed starting mix, grow lights and even a climate controlled greenhouse without any success. I was very disappointed.

Review:

This just a suggestion: You may want to Soak the SEEDS in 500 PPM of Gibberllic acid overnight before planting.. this should increase the germination. PROGIBB is one supplier of 4% GA

Review:

First time I have bought seeds and NONE germinated! Used a little mini greenhouse, heat mat, and waited about 2 1/2 months. I had 2 seeds saved back so I put them in a little petri dish with water. None of those have sprouted either. I called and they told me it can take up to 5 MONTHS for them to sprout! I wish it would say that on the packet or online. Oh, well everything else I have bought did great.
