I know what you are thinking, where on earth do I get these bizzare plants? Oh and no you don’t grow normal bananas and then dye them pink, just to get that out of the way. The truth is, and I have said it over and over again I love growing these out of the norm plants such as the aji limon peppers and the lemon cucumbers. Therefore, naturally I was interested in learning how to grow a pink banana plant.

Unfortunately, I have discovered that getting one of these seeds to germinate is not a walk in the park. But then again, this is what gets me really amped to give it a try. These Musa Velutina plants only grow to a maximum of about 6 feet tall, so they can be grown inside in containers too. I personally think they are well worth the patience and effort.

Here’s What You’ll Need

In order to increase your chances of success, in germinating these seeds, you have to prepare them before planting. This involves filing one side of it until you reach the white stuff inside, and then soaking them in water for at least 24 hours before you actually plant them. The pots have to be prepared the night before too, with the starter mix being soaked and drained a few times.

The seeds are planted at least 3/8 inch deep and the pots are placed inside the ziploc bags. Germination may take up to 180 days, keep an eye on the pots and make sure they remain moist at all times. They should be in an area that is bright, but away from direct sunlight. After germination you will need to slowly expose your seedling to less humidity and more sunlight, before transplanting.
