Mango ginger seeds

But over the winter progress has been slow. It now has two leaves, but they are increasingly pale. I have tried feeding it, and wondered whether it’s offended by my hard tap water. Its last drink was Malvern spring water (collected from a genuine spring by my parents, and my drink for the car on my way home at the weekend), but I think now it is doing what it’s supposed to do – die back for the winter.

I repotted it and brought it inside, and by November 9th it was starting to shoot properly:

I assumed that it was dead, and tipped out the contents of the pot as part of a tidy up to make room for plants that needed to over-winter in the greenhouse. The tiny rhizome had disappeared, but the larger of the two was finally showing a tiny sprout:

A month later, nothing had happened so I potted both roots up and left them them in the bathroom. Still nothing happened, and at some point I lost patience with them and took the pot out to the Grow Dome. It languished there, increasingly dry, until 4th October.

Last year I took part in a Garden Organic Member’s Experiment, to try growing mango ginger (Curcuma amada). On the 15th April my rhizomes arrived in the post – one about the size of a little finger, and one even smaller. The instructions were to leave them to sprout somewhere humid, so I left them in the bathroom.

Shortly after that it unfurled its first leaf:

In theory, if it had grown more vigorously, I could have harvested some of the leafy shoots to eat, and would now be harvesting the rhizome. It is possible to overwinter the plant and let it grow for another year, so we will have to see what it’s 2012 season brings!
