    about this plant

    The baby Aplinia Zerumbet ‘Variegata’ is often referred to as shell ginger, and it is indeed a member of the ginger family. Its beautifully decorated leaves are a joy to look at, and when this little baby grows bigger it will not just sprout even more leaves, it will also flower too! Her flowers smell deliciously gingery sweet, and if you place her on your terrace the bees will be very happy to come and see her. Plus, she knows how to hibernate so if you plant her outside in spring, she will happily grow through the summer and then sleep through the winter.

    The Variegata Zerumbet is a plant of the Ginger family, what many people do not know is that ginger can also bloom beautifully. But this baby plant needs to grow a little first! Place it in a light spot, about 2 metres from the window facing south. She likes a slightly moist soil, so give her a little water twice a week, but keep a finger on the plant, because if she is too wet her roots will rot. She is a fast grower so keep a larger pot.

    It’s so stunning. My plant looks perfectly healthy and almost exactly the same size and shape as the picture! The top leaf is just starting to unfurl. I adore the variegation on this plant and can’t wait to see it grow!

    The plant arrived healthy and beautiful. In less than a month, 2 leave emerge and they are just perfect! Really happy with the plant.

    Healthy plant with loads of variegation. My boyfriend picked this one out for himself and I catch him staring at it multiple times a day :D

    The plant is healthy but the variegation doesn't even come close, to the one pictured.. I hope that changes soon :)
