Also stems and foliage are usedfor animal fodder, young shoots as a vegetable and young seeds as an addition to tortillas. Seeds can be used for jewelry and for musical instruments. In india, cannas are fermented to produce alcohol. The plant yields a fibre - from the stem - it is used as a jute substitute. The fibre that is taken from the leaves is used for making paper. The leaves are harvested in late summer after the plant has flowered, they are scraped to remove the outer skin and are then soaked in water for 2 hours prior to cooking. The fibres are cooked for 24 hours with lye and then beaten in a blender. They make a light tan brown papera purple dye can be made from the seed and the smoke from burning the leaves is said to be insecticidal.
