+ Got some white Globba ginger from Myanmar about 2 months. They now flowering. I m too lazy go photobucket to load pic here - will do later.
But the ones I have are white flowering type - like this:

The plant is about 2ft - 0.6m tall - they like woody composted soil mixture and grow in 30% sunlight - need shading and cool, wet place.

Anybody interested to grow can pass you some or exchange with me other colours you might have?

Hi - I suspect both of you are growing globba winitii, similar to the one that Wilson displayed in SGF. Its strange that the globba went dormant. It should not do so if the temperature is above 65F, which is so all year round in Singapore.

+After flowering and the plant die down, must take out from soil, clean and let it dry and 'rest' for about 3 months. Then plant again. Cannot leave it in the ground or it will rot in our weather. Dont leave it out in the rain also. Water sparingly but must keep in cool, 30% Sunlight space+

Hiya botanica
May I know how long does it take for the globba corm to grow from corm to flowering?
I assume that the corm is out of dormancy once it's planted. tia
