Help with Musa sikkimensis seeds

I live in NW Oregon and would really like to start growing Musa sikkimensis. Around here M. basjoo flourish, but I'd rather grow something more unusual. I tried importing some seeds from Germany, but had zero luck germinating them. Does any one know of a good source of seeds or plants?

I got some seeds of M. Sikkimensis var. Darjeeling Giant" on ebay from "tropicalireland last year and had 4 of 10 come up. Pretty easy with a heat matt.
