Growing vegetables in banana stems

In Indonesia, they are repurposing the banana stem refuse and turning them into planters for short-root vegetables. The stem often goes to waste after the harvest. It is a fascinating idea. Carolyn sent us this article, noting it would be worth testing.

“However, the best part about the banana stems is that these last for a really long period of time and when the stems finally decompose, they end up enriching the soil all the more.”

There is a short video on how you can start your own banana stem plater, you can watch it below.

Thank you, Carolyn, for the idea!
