I got my first ginger after getting poisoned by DeTengs at the hortpark bazaar where he bought the reddish ground hugging ginger from Amos's stall.. absolutely loved the foliage.. bought this fella today from WF to try my hands out on gingers before I embark on anything more ambitious..

anyone knows what it is? it's quite fragrant..
