ONE INFLUENCER whose DIY fertilizer is made from kitchen scraps has described it as pure “magic”.
He said if you only feed your plants his mix once a week, they’ll love you for it.
His recipe was super easy to prepare, only taking ten seconds, but the effects on your plants will last much longer, he said.
Armen Adamian (@creative_explained) was an enthusiastic and passionate advocate of his plant food idea.
He’s hugely popular on TikTok, where his “Hacks, Tips, Tricks” has 6.2 million followers and another 97.3 million likes.
A fan summed up the opinion of many on Armen’s platform: “You are the greatest plant guy,” he wrote.
In this post, he praised the benefits of banana water and couldn’t wait to convince his audience of its benefits.
“I have to bring it back,” he said, urging viewers to keep those banana peels.
Don’t throw them in the bin, he begged, because he could have used them better.
Instead, he suggested putting them in a mug, adding some hot water, and letting it sit for an hour.
Armen explained the inner workings of banana water: “What’s happening right now is that the water is being enriched with nutrients.”
He wasn’t even sure if that was a word, but he would use it anyway.
“Potassium, phosphorus, calcium and magnesium are released into the water,” he said in his usual energetic way.
“In simple terms, these are things that plants need to thrive and grow healthier and stronger,” he said of his specialty brew.
“Feed your plants this easy, homemade fertilizer once a week and your plants will love you,” he promised.
“Make this a habit, part of your daily routine. I mean, it only takes about ten seconds longer than just throwing it away.
According to Armen, it was an all-round win-win with its magical banana water: “Reduce food waste and keep your plants happy,” he said.
Commentators loved its simple idea.
“Being so holistic looks so hot,” gushed one fan.
Another was equally enthusiastic about his idea and about him: “You are amazing.”
For the last comment, this viewer was switched to homemade plant food: “I held off on buying fertilizer today. I thought of your videos and got inspired to prepare natural, homemade products. Thank you for sharing.”
