Alpinia Zerumbet Variegata or "Variegated Shell Ginger" is considered an edible plant by many cultures around the world. The leaves are often used in teas and infusions as well as in food. Their stunning foliage is similar to a calathea though they don't suffer the humidity woes that calatheas often do. This plant is steeped (pun totally intended) in history and we're sure you'll love having it in your home.


Care: Keep soil lightly moist. Temps of 19c+ preferred. Medium to dappled light preferred. 40%+ Humidity is best.

Alpinia Zerumbet is considered non-toxic deeming them Pet Friendly Plants. Although edible please know the intended use of this plant is to be ornamental and therapeutic ☺️. Consume at your own risk.
