If you’re a plant enthusiast, especially of succulents, you know how challenging it can be to keep them healthy and maintain their appearance. Succulents tend to yellow, wrinkle, or rot due to various factors.

Fortunately, there are highly effective and accessible methods to keep succulents healthy and prevent them from suffering or, as often happens, irreversibly rotting.

We invite you to try the following natural fertilizer made from bananas. It takes almost nothing to prepare, and it can be a real lifesaver for our beloved succulents.


  • 4 or 5 banana peels
  • 3 liters of water


  1. Prepare Banana Peel Pieces: The first step is to cut the banana peels into pieces. Extract about 4 or 5 pieces from each peel.
  2. Boil the Banana Peels: Bring one liter of water to a boil, then add the banana peels and simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. Blend and Mix: After simmering, blend the mixture thoroughly and mix it well with the remaining two liters of water from the total.
