Musa itinerans 'Burmese Blue'

Musa itinerans 'Burmese Blue': Musa itinerans 'Burmese Blue,' or Burmese Blue Banana, seeds can be germinated using the baggy method. Moisten a paper towel and place the seeds on it. Fold the paper towel over the seeds, place it in a sealed plastic bag, and store it in a warm location. After 2-3 weeks, sow the pre-germinated seeds in well-draining soil, about 1/2 inch deep. Maintain a temperature of around 75-85°F (24-29°C) and keep the soil consistently moist. Germination may take several 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.
