Zingiberaceae is the Ginger family and includes culinary ginger. Plants grow lance-shaped leaves from a fleshy underground root called a rhizome. These can be easily divided to grow into new plants. Often grown for their attractive foliage, some will also produce equally enjoyable flowers.
Light: Part-sun to full-sun
Water: Water routinely to maintain even moisture, but avoid any excess or standing water below the roots.
Environment: Though adaptable, Ginger do like a little boost to their ambient humidity. Low environmental humidity can lead to some blemishes on the leaves, which can easily be trimmed away. Older leaves will deplete over time and may need to be pruned away to maintain a neat and tidy appearance.
Toxicity: No toxicity is reported.
Culinary ginger is Zingiber officinale
*When planting in a pot without a drainage hole, avoid over watering by estimating 25% of the container’s overall volume, with appropriate drainage materials incorporated when planting.
