How to use Banana peels in plants as Homemade Liquid Fertilizer

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 homemade 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.

3. After they are completely dried, place those peels and eggshells in the blender and make them into a fine powder hence homemade fertilizer helps the plants.

4. Now add Epsom salt and banana peel powder to the spray bottle, and fill it with water.

Do not spray the liquid fertilizer mixture directly on plants, that are in complete sunlight, instead spray into the soil around the plant.

    I am growing tomatoes indoors until I get them big enough, and it’s warm enough to plant outside. I thought your banana eggshell and Epsom salts would help. What do you think? How much Epsom salts, egg shells, and banana peels?

    I have used a banana peel, freshly peeled, in my blender filled with water and blended it and put it on my indoor plants. It works wonders.
