MUSA 'TIGER STRIPES'
A superb new, almost hardy banana. Large purple-black stripes decorate the enormous, wind-resistant leaves. A magnificent and striking monster for a very large pot or sheltered border.
Abrade a small portion of each seed with sand paper or on a rough brick or similar, then soak seeds for 24 hours before sowing 2cm deep in a good loamy compost. Keep in a propagator or warm place, at between 20 and 25 degrees C, and do not exclude light. Germination can be erratic, usually taking between 2 to 12 months, sometimes longer, so do not discard the seed pots. Pot on small plants frequently in a coarse loose compost to achieve huge plants very quickly.
