Banana stem scraps are being recycled in Iɴᴅᴏɴᴇsɪᴀ and used as planters for short-root vegetables. Drilled holes are filled with compost, which is then planted. It’s a fantastic strategy to keep nutrients in and avoid watering. Weeds won’t be able to compete easily. Stem decay will provide food for the plants. It may be feasible to insert some really rich material, such as chicken dung, into the hole and then severely water it to allow the material to spread throughout the stem. After that, plant using ordinary compost. Both a water reserve and a nutrient reserve would be present. But you’ve already seen the images. It appears to be obvious.
The ones that are standing are another matter. Some organisms feed parasitically on bananas. It is also possible to fill the gaps with compost. Orchids and other plants that simply need a lovely, damp area high up in the air tend to thrive there. I’ll wager that the majority of ᴄʀᴇᴇᴘʏ crawlies who climb up a banana stem do so in the hopes of consuming bananas rather than the lettuce, onions, or other things we placed in the holes. So it might be an effective ruse to fool pest species.
ᴍᴀɴy people would want to stand up at their desks instead then slouch. The children can handle stems that are on the ground while you plant those that are standing. The cobras reside there. It is acceptable to farm the truck to ᴅᴇᴀᴛʜ until it rots away or falls since sometimes the living ones hold bananas that still need to be picked and other times they have already been harvested.
Banana debris is typically spread out around the remaining trucks to act as mulch and provide them with nutrients. If done in the field, this procedure does not detract from that because the compost and other ingredients will make the final product even richer when the stem decomposes. Since banana circles are really a large compost pile with a banana overstory and other plants growing beneath, they are already a very effective system. In the tropical sun, growing lettuce can be challenging.
A banana circle’s inside is fairly dark. To produce lettuce, I could picture putting a couple trucks in that area. Plants that require more sunlight can be placed all the way around the banana circle. I’m going to give every variation of this a shot. When the bananas are almost ready to be picked and well on their way, I guess I’d like to do it parasitically. Then, as opposed to cutting down the stock as is customary, I would keep it standing and observe how much production it can produce before dying.
In order to make it into a standing stem that can continue to wick water and live for a considerable amount of time, I’d like to try the same experiment with all of the leaves removed. This would stop the banana crop from competing with the harvested banana for light. Another approach would be to cut it off at a height of around 6 feet, leaving only that portion standing. When bananas are picked, that is roughly the correct height to make the cut. To prevent the fruit from being bruised, one worker chops the stem while one or two others ᴍᴀɴage the fall.
This one won’t live for very long, but maybe it will, long enough to produce a harvest of lettuce or onions. It is possible to hollow down the cut’s top and plant soᴍᴇᴛʜing there. It would resemble a little tree. Alternatively, stems can be cut into short pieces like firewood and used as plant pots. This provides the opportunity to transplant into the soil, making it an excellent location for longer-living things. As with peat pots, smaller pieces—down to roughly 3 in diameter—could be beneficial as starter pots that are planted in gardens.
