'Q' is for Quiet Beauty

My ginger plant, started from a root cutting given to me by a friend at work, bloomed unexpectedly last week. The deal is that I am now to give cuttings to 3 friends and pass on the serene beauty.

What a lovely surprise indeed ! When we lived in the West Indies the ginger orchid was so easy to grow, almost like a weed. But it doesn't seem to do well for me in Florida, guess because the soil here is too sandy and not rich enough for it.

do you keep it inside on a windowsill? It's lovely. Any scent?

What graceful little flowers!
I should try to plant the shoots next time (instead of eating them in salads).

Very beautiful. I have some wild ginger in my garden, but it doesn't look anything like that! Where did the root come from? It wasn't a piece of ginger root from the store, was it? Is this plant in the orchid family? I love orchids and grow them inside here in our cold Canadian climate. I wish I was one of your friends who gets a cutting! Oh, well.

So that's what ginger looks like. Nice to meet the flower, after only knowing the root!
