A moderately sized banana from northern Thailand, Laos and Vietnam that has previously been associated with both M. acuminata and M. balbisiana but is now thought to be Musa itinerans, close to the recently described variety guangdongensis but not the same, as it grows considerably bigger and has suckers developing 2-3m away from the main plant rather than the tightly clustering habit of Musa itinerans var guangdongensis. The mature fruits are bluish to purple, rather small, and are locally used in Thai cuisine.

    Sowing; Sow indoors at any time of year. Sow seeds as soon as you are able. If you are not going to sow them, store them in their packaging in a cool, dark, dry place. (Do not refrigerate)

    Soak seed for 3-4 days in warm water, which has been previously boiled. Change the water each day. (This process is important, as gets rid of germination inhibitors) Fill either large cells or trays with perlite, vermiculite or sterilized compost. Stand the trays in water until the medium is completely moist.

    Sow the seeds 2.5cm (1”) deep. Spray the seeds with a little copper based fungicide. Bottom heat is helpful, place in a propagator if you have one or in a warm location out of direct sunlight. Do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep at a constant temperature of 20-25°C (68-77°F).

    Check the seeds daily for germination. If mold or fungus appears, remove the seeds and wash them in warm water. Spray them with fungicide and re-sow in a fresh medium in a sterilized pot. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged. Patience is needed as germination is erratic and take from one to twelve months. Do not give up too soon!

    Growing; When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3 inch) pots, taking care not to damage the root system. Grow on in well-lit conditions, and pot on, into rich, well-drained soil, as required. Water the plant thoroughly and every 1 to 3 days thereafter depending on the season. Do not soak! Remember moist soil, not wet, not dry.
