 "Shampoo type" ginger, with wide, dark-green leaves and pinecone-like reddish inflorescences that come out of the ground. It is partly deciduous and during the colder months it can shed all stems and rest as a rhizome underground. Thanks to this winter break, it is rather easy to grow this tropical perennial in non-tropical countries as it can be easily brought indoors. Keep it slightly moist when resting and not bone-dry.

We ship one adult thick rhizome, grown in the field, with at least two growing points, bare rooted in sphagnum, with or without shoots, depending on the season.
