Banana peels are as useful as the banana. They contain antifungal, antibiotic and enzymatic properties that can be put to good use. They contain nutrients that are essential for healthy potted plants. However, they don't contain everything your plant needs. As they decompose, banana peels add potassium as well as small amounts of nitrogen, phosphorus and magnesium to the soil in a similar fashion as a slow-release fertilizer. Organic matter like banana peels returned to the soil helps activate microbes which in turn release the minerals into the soil so the plants.
