has anyone ever heard of a Zingiber Golden Bush? I rec'd one as a gift, and I cannot find any info on it. I am wondering if that is really what the name is. Has anyone heard of it, and if so, how do I take care of it?

I don't grow any of these myself, but there are many members here that do grow plants in that Genus.

That link will show all the plants we currently have in our database from the genus, does your plant resemble any of these?
