Good friends of @farms, today I want to share with everyone how to grow banana at home. This is an excellent technique to have fruts at home and this fruit is very good and one of my favorite fruits. We can also grow it without problems at home in a porron or in our garden.
Before I start I want to talk about the banana, these banana plants are native to the tropics and subtropics, tend to grow quickly and are easy to grow if you want to start growing banana. Many people who grow this plant do so because of its great benefits and properties, as they do because they are good at decorating, but speaking of their benefits and properties, bananas are high in potassium and magnesium, and thanks to this they are special for the functioning of the cardiovascular and digestive system. And they will improve the health of the heart.

  • To grow a banana plant it is necessary to have a bulb or rizona of a mother plant, which is recommended to wash first with boiled water to kill any fungus or bacteria that may have.

  • Then look for a pot or a fairly wide container 50 cm in diameter, with holes in the lower area to facilitate drainage of the plant. Then you may have to perform a transplant to a larger container.

  • In addition, the land that is required to plant this plant should be light and sandy so that water can drain easily. You can also help the soil by adding compost so that it has enough nutrients.

  • Then, after having the soil inside the container, you can create a very deep hole so that the roots of your seedling or rhizome can comfortably enter, afterwards it should be covered with a layer of soil 2 to 3 cm above so that the roots will not be exposed. to the sun.
