I am starting a greenhouse in my basement, and continuing to create my rainforest scheme in my livingroom, through all of this I am gaining tons of knowledge, and experience, and it seems that my neighbors, friends and family are being very supportive.. My husband went out to get my plantain seeds today, but as an experiment I am going to cut a slice from my childrens bannanas and plant it in soil. Most of gardening soils for some plants require humus or some type of rotting compost, we throw bannana peels in the compost pile when we create them, so why not put the bannana in the soil? For instance to propagate a coconut you leave it inside its shell for the first year of its life it gets the proper nutrients from the milk inside, and then after you have to fertilize it. Hey its worth a shot, at least I can say I've never tried planting a bannana Slice. But then again most seeds have got to be dried out before you plant them anyways Wonder if my family is up for bannana chips?
