What are the pros? Very exotic
What are the cons? Overly difficult germination
It's been said many times before but still I have to say germinating these is close to impossible.
My plant care may be debatable but I take pride in my germinating skills. I've had better success with germinating store-bought coconuts than these. I've been keeping the seeds under perfect conditions for almost 4 months now with half in growing medium and half in a zip-lock bag and still nothing.
I'm keeping my patience but if you're considering buying these, I think you'd be better off putting your efforts into other plants or maybe another variety of banana. Or maybe not grow them from seed if you can get your hands on seedlings.
