It is also a nice ornamental: flowers are not too exciting (parvi-flora means small flowered) but leaves are glossy and wavy. Surasak et al. in 2017 published "Among the Hmong hill tribe, <<Kaempferia parviflora>> is widely believed to reduce perceived effort, improve physical work capacity, and prolong hill trekking. A number of pharmacological studies of Krachaidum have shown the following properties: antiallergenic, anti-inflammatory, antimutagenic, antidepressive, anticholinesterase, antimicrobial, anticancer, anti–-peptic ulcer, cardioprotective, antiobesity activity, and aphrodisiac." It is a summer-grower and it usually wakes up in late june
