Banana peel to make your orchids bloom

To increase the flowering of your orchid, there’s nothing like adding a little fertilizer to its substrate. The most popular natural fertilizer for this type of plant is banana peel. This is precisely the nutrient it needs: rich in vitamins B6 and C, mineral salts such as potassium and magnesium, banana peel is the little push it needs to grow and flourish peacefully.

Take a banana peel, wash it and cut it into small pieces. Then place them in a bowl with 2 liters of water and soak them for about 48 hours. Finally filter the mixture.
