I know this is kind of a dumb question but I’ve always wondered this (not just about banannas but all fruit/veggie goodness, but banannas are a good example)
So, potassium is a basic element right? So if you plant a bananna seed in some dirt that doesn’t have any potassium traces in it where does the potassium in the bananna come from? Does it generate it somehow? I would guess that it comes from the bananna breaking down some specific molecule that has a potassium component since you can’t just “make” an element out of nothing.
So, if you plant a bananna in some potassium free dirt will it grow? If so where does the potassium come from?
