The Q&A Archives: White Ginger

Question: I have a white ginger that I started from root stock purchased in Hawaii this past February. It is about 14 inches tall, and getting new growth, but the leaves are browning at the tips? What is the problem?

Answer: Browning tips usually indicates over or underwatering, or overfertilizing. White ginger is a tropical plant which will thrive on warmth and humidity, but really dislikes wet feet. The plants go into dormancy during the winter months, so expect the tops of the plant to die off. When this happens, water only sparingly until new sprouts emerge from the crown of the plant.
