If you're looking for a big, loud splash of colour to add to your collection, then look no further than the Variegated Shell Ginger. This is the loud plant at the party that's dancing on the tables!
Variegated shell ginger can be grown in large containers as a houseplant or patio plant (alone or in mixed containers) for a tropical effect. It can be planted in the ground as a striking specimen plant, or in masses as a bright backdrop for other flowering plants.
POSITION As a houseplant, variegated shell ginger needs bright light and does best in humid conditions. The leaves will brown on the edges if it does not have adequate moisture or gets too cold. Plants can be divided if they get too large for the container.
WATER Provide plenty of water during the growing season and do not allow the soil to dry out (but it shouldn’t be constantly soggy either). Plants in containers should be fertilised at least monthly.
Pictured here in a 20cm pot, it will be shipped potted.
