Product description

This banana species has a beautiful pink inflorescence which is followed by sweet pink edible bananas. Naturally the plant stays small (maximum 2 meters), and is therefore very suitable to grow in a pot or container. Already after 2 years the plant can start to flower. It is best to protect the plant against frost, but the roots can survive a minimum of -5 degC. However, the stem and leaves will die when exposed to frost. A sheltered stand without (too much) direct sunlight is recommended.

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.

Family: Musaceae
Scientific name: Musa velutina
Common name: Pink dwarf banana / hairy banana
Native to: India

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

one seed has already germinated

These are erratic in germination from what I read but it's been a month since I soaked them and put them in damp paper towel in a sealed bag and one of them has germinated which is great. Looking forward to the rest of them :)

Goede zaden en snel geleverd.

Het is nu het derde jaar dat ik deze plant heb. Er bleven twee zaailingen over, die het eerste jaar alleen blad aanmaakten. Het tweede jaar volgde bloei met daarop prachtige roze banaantjes. Niet eetbaar overigens, de bittere smaak die normaal gesproken in de schil van gele bananen zit, zit in de hele vrucht, en deze zit ook vol met zaden. Na de vruchtzetting is de moederplant afgestorven, maar vanuit het hart is nieuwe groei ontstaan. Afgelopen jaar hebben die gegroeid (blad aangemaakt). Hopelijk volgend jaar weer bloei.
Leuke plant, al kan het slecht tegen de wind (in de zomer staan ze buiten). De stengels krijgen dan vlug een vouw, waardoor ze slap gaan hangen.

Ik heb alle 5 de zaden in 2017 gezaaid en 1 is er uitgekomen.
Die groeit als kool, met name tijdens de zomer gaat het hard. Er komen elke week wel nieuwe bladeren aan de plant. In het voorjaar van 2019 gaat 'ie in een grotere pot en heel benieuwd of hij dan nog groter gaat worden en gaat bloeien.
