Q.Blue Ginger Plants

Zone Orlando, Florida | sweetpeamoon added on March 19, 2018 | Answered

Today I had to pot my blue ginger in a new pot as the old one broke. When I pulled the plant out of the pot to re position it – I found 10 or more potato like bulbs. What are they and can I get more plants from them? If so, what’s the best way to plant them ?

These grow from a large Rhizome... If it has multiple, then it is a well established plant. It can be a bit tricky to split these, but as long as you get both root knots, and shoot knots on your chunk then they will make more plants VERY easily.
