I've begun planting a outwardly expanding circle of bananas and platanos. All of the "seeds" have come from the generosity of my community. They are all considered "criollo" or native with some smaller and others quite tall. I've planted them in an area I'd like to reforest to help protect a natural year-round stream that is a corridor for squirrel monkeys and in a location that is full of heliconias and other forest plants.
I cleared a circular space for each seedling and left all the other plants in place. Already I can see the seedlings sprouting new shoots. I'm looking for other plants to grow in the understory, and am considering Cacao, Coffee, and around the exterior some Papayas.
I'd love to hear what you think might make a good understory to a circle of bananas. With gratitude — Evelyn
