Got the root at the supermarket 4 years ago.  Planted it in a large pot and is doing very well.  The leaves and flowers die of in winter and start coming back every spring.

All gingers prefer filtered light, rich, deep, fertile soils with plenty of organic matter, good water and warm climates. Poor soils and cooler climes are tolerated but root yield is subsequently poorer. All have beautiful flowers.
