Shampoo Ginger

I was given a plant which I was told is “Shampoo Ginger” over 3 years ago at a garden exchange meeting. It bore lots of leaves but nothing else so I decided to transfer it to the back “slope” on the edge of the property.

But … last week a few pink buds of sort suddenly popped out and I began observing if the bud would change, open up or just stay as is.

The pollinato...!?

So, will I get seeds? Is the Shampoo Ginger  used to make shampoo? I’m about to find out.

  1. Nature is a wonderful and amazing companion. I hope the pollinator works wonders and you can show us more in due course. Great photos.
