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.

Key note

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.

Beginner Plant Mum Update

Hey guys, so if you are following me for my plant mum journeys, I am a beginner, as you all know I’m wishing I paid more attention to plants when my grandmother was alive. However as I did not, I’m now learning on my own. (not completely on my own I do use social media platforms to learn off other plant parents)

In the image above you can well and truly see I have gotten into propagating, some plants you can do it in water and well other prefer the soil.

I’d like to thank the lovely Instagrammer below for giving me some advice. Attached is her Insta if you’d like to check it out.

Snake plants

A few months ago, I cut some snake plant leaves and placed them in glass jars. As you can see they were ready to pot in soil.

Check out my panda plant, it’s finally got more growth spurts

High Power

What makes you feel at peace? What do you feel connected to? What is your high power?

I’ve been wanting to make a post about what I believe is my higher power, what brings peace to my inner self. No, it’s not God, although I believe myself to be quite spiritual. My high power is known as nature. Our plants.

I honestly could not tell you the name of most plants or how to look after them but I can tell you that they make me feel grounded & connected. I can breathe more, I can smile and relax. I can think about my goals and remind myself of positive affirmations, to keep me going in life.

Near my house there is a nursery, on my days off I take go on my lonesome and sit within, with the plants.

“We plant a garden as we believe in tomorrow.
