Pine Cone Gingers
Hi, new to this forum, hope you don't mind my jumping in with a question. A friend gave me some pine cone ginger rhizomes years ago and I shared with my sister. She planted hers close to their septic tank and they have bloomed every year. Mine haven't even grown very tall much less bloom. I don't have soil in my yard, it's just "dirt". What sort of location do these gingers like and what kind of fertilizer should I be using. Should I use compost heavily in my dirt? Please HELP.
I have the same problem with some heliconas. Should they be treated the same as gingers? I don't see a Helicona forum so any help would be appreciated. Will also ask about these on the tropical forum. TIA
