Last week my friends and I came across a field of happiness. One of my friends confidently asked the farmer if we could take photos in his field. He kindly let us. Most of the flowers were facing the sun looking away from us, and some looked like characters with hats. Absolutely gorgeous!
Looking at the periodic table the symbol K is for Potassium , a key element that majority of our Green plants love. To keep a plant bold and beautiful, it needs one of the key ingredients, Potassium.
Why else does your plant need Potassium?
🪴 Helps the chemical and metabolically process
🪴 Assists in photosynthesis
🪴 Generates chlorophyll
🪴 Regulated movement of water amongst cells
For the love of our plants babies, have you looked at your plants and asked them how they are, they may not talk back but they may have symptoms of a potassium deficiency.
A plant will tell you if needs potassium by;
🪴 You’re vegetables and fruits are not ripening.
🪴 The leaves at the bottom half of them plant are turning yellow
🪴 The growth of your plant have slowed or even stopped.
A way to feed your plant Potassium?
Avoiding chemical fertilisers, your plant will eat up the Potassium in banana peel. So rather than throwing out you banana peel , give it to your Potassium loving plants.
What can do you with banana peel?
🍌 Banana Peel Tea
🍌 Banana Peel powder
🍌 Compost it
🍌 Apply it directly into the soil by cutting it into pieces.
Do it Yourself – Banana Peel Tea
All you need is banana peel straight off your bananas, place that peel in a jar of water with a lid. Keep it in for 7 days. Remove the peel from the jar with the tea, and tip it at the base of your plant.
It depends on the plant on how much you need to feed it potassium, it also depends on the season and the environment your plant is living in.
