banana seeds

bought 6. have them planted and keep them moist. Have been planted bout a mouth. followed your instructions on FB. One has sprouted and is about to form a leaf. I am all excited!

excellent germination

ive ordered these seeds from other companies with some luck. this time after 3 weeks most have roots and half have popped above the soil. I did scarify and provide bottom heat as well as soaking and darkness till they germinated
