Default What is the best fertilizer for bananas?

Do young plants have different nutritional requirements?

Is pure potash a good one?

If I get another large rabbit and let him run around the plants will he do more fertilizing than eating? My last rabbit was great - when we shared bananas he would eat the peel and I would get the stuff inside.

Anyway what are individual members preferences in this regard?

I use composted kitchen scraps as well as slow release osmocote, and all different kinds of packaged fertilizers and trace elements of that nature. Liquid fish, liquid seaweed... manure works well too, overburden soil, etc.
Apologies in advance if I am slow to reply to your PM. I suggest posting in the forums for support if you need something urgent.
