The pink banana or flowering banana remains relatively small (maximum 3 meters), and has beautiful pink bracts that surround the yellow flowers. The fruits are dark-pink and non-edible.

Sowing description: Sand the seeds with sanding paper and soak them in lukewarm water for 48 hours. Sow the seeds in sowing mix and keep the soil constantly moist by covering the soil with plastic foil or glass. Let the seeds germinate in a warm spot indoors (for example in the sun or near a heater). Germination can take a few weeks or months, and can still occur as long as the seeds are firm.

Sowing time: Whole year
Difficulty: Intermediate
Minimum temperature: 5 degrees Celcius
