1 packet (4 musa seeds) (32465)

Sowing
Sow anytime of year after soaking the seeds for 24 hours in lukewarm water. Use a peat based seed compost and sow 6mm (0.25in) deep. After sowing, seal the seed container inside a polythene bag in order to keep the compost moist. Germination is slow and erratic and can take 1-6 months at 80F.

As each seed germinates, transfer it to a 3in pot of good free draining compost taking care not to damage the fragile roots. Pot on as required, the larger the container the larger the plant will grow.

More Info

Grow on in warm well lit conditions. During summer they can be stood outside or planted in the border but should be brought into well lit frost free conditions for the winter when it should be kept moderately dry. Some discoloration of the leaf ends may occur through the winter months, but this won't harm the plant.
