Name: Carol Noel Hawaii (near Hilo) It's all about choices.
I have seedlings of this small epiphytic ginger available....and will have seeds shortly. I have my plant growing in the ground but they can be planted on rocks, in trees etc. if you have the climate for it. When the plant gets ready to bloom, the first little red spikes appear....and they grow and grow and grow and finally the whole flower opens....the process takes about a month so it not just a flash and it is over.
The seedlings are in 4" pots and are about 6" tall. I would prefer to sell at least 4 at a pop to make the shipping and the effort worthwhile. $5 each.
I am from Germany and my favourites are the gingers, esp. Hedychium. I meanwhile have a large collection of Hedychium, but since many years I am searching for Hedychium longicornutum, without any success until today. Now I found your post and although it is from 2010 I want to ask you if or when you will have fresh and viable seeds of H.longicornutum again and if you would sell some seeds to me. THIS WOULD BE FANTASTIC.
Best regards from a today sunny Germany, after a long cold and rainy period,
Oh, thank you Carol. That would be great. I am sure that good vibes from the plant and you will help get well .
Just a question- it is listed as an epiphytic ginger but in some articles I read it can be grown in the soil as well. Where is yours growing? Soil or trees? I assume it will need shade and regular water like most gingers .
I have been collecting, studying and selling hoyas for about 10 years. This Cubit is about growing hoyas, and about the hoyas I have to sell. I welcome any and all hoya lovers, whether you want to buy or not. Hooked on Hoyas is another great Hoya sight
