WF may still have the purple 'dancing girls' (pic 1). For the pink dragon (pic 2) i got it in Chiengmai...as for the yellow one (schomburgkii, i presume) i chance upon it during a trip in malaysia....i used to have a white dragon too but it's lost somewhere in my garden... :P/>

rockhop: some posts went missing??? weird.

well anyway, i ve got no more bulbs but have some yound plants. i'll give them away when they reach closer to flowering... although i think they're having a bit of trouble in their current mix. but we'll see. so no worries.

sweethalo: i dont grow globbas so i dont really have any idea. but i guess there are some left in world farm and they're easy to get in thailand. i was speaking with alan carle and he said a good aspect of gingers to try and grow are the small ones like globbas, and certain zingibers.

Hi Sweethalo,
Globbas grow in pretty much the same conditions as etlingeras. I used to think they love deep shade but i've changed my mind...they can grow in partial shade too. Something u need to take note is they sometimes die back for some months but when conditions are right, they will spring right up again!

I hope this helps!

cheers,
detengs

how did ur fren know? i suppose one has to stoop at the waterfalls a whole year just to prove the specimen never sleeps.. :lol:/>

just kidding huh, ryan...i do have one globba 'dancing girl' that blooms everyday in a year. Their leaves are markedly different in structure from those that die back easily! Sometimes, unsuitable conditions may cause them to die back! so it's hard to confirm if they do indeed go to sleep or die back because of unsuitable cultivation conditions...

not much...haven't seen them for a long time. The last one which I encountered was rather root aphids on my white ice calathea. Applied some systemic insecticide and they were gone.
