With long leaves that show off streaks of bright yellows and greens, the Variegated Ginger plant makes for an eye-catching houseplant, and does well in outdoor planters during warm summer months.
Water: Allow top 2 inches of soil to dry out between waterings. Allow for excess water to drain away to avoid root rot.
Light: Prefers bright, indirect sunlight. Can handle some shade/direct light. Darkening leaves is a sign of too much direct light.
Soil: Loose, aerated, well draining soil.
Humidity: This plant is a big fan. Mist regularly, or use a pebble tray or humidifier to increase humidity and keep your plant happy.
Fertilizer: Fertilize once a month using a balanced houseplant fertilizer. Do not fertilize in winter.
