Description

This ginger spirals, circling as it grows and can get up to 6 feet tall! It enjoys bright indirect light and can grow in part shade, no direct afternoon sun though or it will scorch the plant. It can be grown as a house plant indoors or outside. Pot in rich, nutrient dense soil and water once the top few inches of soil has dried. Water less in cooler months, and protect from freezing temperatures.
