Rare Ginger from Sarawak

Recently saw this growing in a private collection. What a beautiful leaf, maybe the prettiest I had ever seen in all my years of collecting. It's in the genus, Etlinger and is probably grown for it's foliage and not the flower.

Is it growing in Florida ?

Imagine it would be ultra tropical , habitat is clay riverbanks in steamy Borneo rainforest .

Jeff. That was a nice ginger.. I got one but not sure if is going to live? Remember we were told not to cut off the stem? Well it was cut off so yeh

maybe Poonsak was right? BTW I got the other one with crinkle leaf and looks like it will kick on.

Same here. I left the stem intact, but I'm pretty confident it has already rotted, the base of the stem has turned to mush. I'm so pissed!!! But the other one IS doing great like yours, and I have faith it will sprout up. I'll be happy with the one making it.

Yeh shame.... Thats the one I really wanted to pull through, yes the other seems to be doing ok but the mottled one as with your rotted real fast even with fungicide so obviously the are hard to propagate even though its a rhizome which are usually fairly easy.!!
