Why We Love It

Alpinia zerumbet ‘Variegata’ brings a touch of the tropics to any room with bright, filtered light.

This member of the ginger family impresses with luxurious green leaves, irregularly streaked with lighter yellowy green.

Originating from eastern Asia, mature plants can even produce spikes of exotic pink flowers, commonly in summer.

To keep foliage at its prime, raise humidity by misting regularly with water – or grow in a bathroom or kitchen.

Planting Calendar

Plant in January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November, December.

Flowers in June, July, August.

Planting and Care

Into a Pot

  1. Choose a pot that’s slightly bigger than the plant's temporary container.
  2. Ensure the new pot has drainage holes so excess water can escape.
  3. Part-fill the new pot with a quality houseplant compost.
  4. Remove the temporary container and place the plant in the new pot, so the rootball sits slightly below the pot’s rim (it’ll prevent water from running over the edge).
  5. Fill the gaps around the edges with compost, firm in gently and stand the pot in a saucer..
  6. Water well to settle your new plant in.
