Help! How do you grow dwarf pink velvet seeds?

plantsofheaven(PA/18088)May 21, 2006

I had gotten some in a trade but have no idea how I should go about growing them. Should I soak the seeds? Knick the seeds? How deep should I plant them? Please let me know how I should plant the seeds.

Soak them for 5 days.

When germinating, fluctuate temps. 10 hrs of 25-30 degrees C and 14 hrs of 10-15 degrees C. In other words, maybe it's best to germinate them outside at this time of year, in your climate.
I have never had success without alternating temperatures for any musa-species.
