Ginger question

Anakaleki(z9FriendswoodTX)June 23, 2004

My butterfly ginger is growing up and out of the soil. Do they naturally grow ontop of the ground? My grandmother has a huge colony of them and the rhizomes are all over the place coming up out of the soil. Should I top dress with humus?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Yes that is natural. A little top dressing want hurt.
