Germination of

Ensete glaucum

Snow Banana: White Velvet Banana, Frosty Banana, Snowflake Banana, Arctic Banana, Polar Banana

Ensete glaucum

Snow bananas are propagated from rhizomes. Plant the rhizomes in well-draining soil, burying them about 2 inches deep. Keep the soil consistently moist and place the container in a warm, sunny location. Rhizomes should sprout within 2 to 4 weeks.

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
