- Nourish Your Orchids:
Orchids can be notoriously fussy, but they’ll love the potassium boost provided by banana peels. Soak small pieces of peels in water for a few days and use the nutrient-rich liquid to water your orchids. This potassium-infused treat will help your orchids produce vibrant, long-lasting blooms.
- Support Your Tomato Plants:
Tomatoes are potassium-hungry plants that will greatly benefit from the addition of banana peels to their soil. Bury small pieces of peels near your tomato plants to provide them with the potassium they need to grow strong and produce abundant, juicy fruits.
- Create a Nutrient-Rich Mulch:
Chop up dried banana peels and mix them with other organic materials like leaves, grass clippings, or straw to create a nutrient-rich mulch. Spread this mixture around your plants to help retain moisture, regulate soil temperature, and provide a slow release of nutrients as the peels decompose.
