In Maldivian lifestyle the locals would grow some of the fruits in front yard and back yard of the house. The idea is to have few fruit trees to surfice the needs of household. Banana trees are often grown in open-air bathrooms, the waste water from the shower are channelled to banana plants so it does not need any additional watering.


Guava trees don't need watering, the natural rain water is enough for them to survice. However, the harvest would be better if watered few times a week and soil is fertile. In Maldives people usually don't look after guava trees, they stay live on their own and bear fruits all year around.
