Gingers- Hedychium ‘Lizzie’ Hedychium coccineum 'Lizzie'

With all of the Instagram and Pinterest photos proliferating the internet, just a few truths and tips if you intend on using this species as indoor foliage interest.
They may flower indoors, but there is a high chance they wont. It’s based on the fact they’re not in their year round, naturally, very warm setting. They are very much about the foliage for indoors. If you buy this species because you desperately want it to flower, – reconsider, or plant outside.
They will get meali bug and other pests (possible red spider mite) if kept in a heated or full, hard sun site indoors. All of your indoor plants will end up stressing in a room with a heat pump or open fire during winter, unless you do regular misting and are really on top of your watering regime (not overwatering regime!)
Keep them away from being close to ranch sliders or big, floor to ceiling windows where they will get sunburnt very fast by the reflected, burning light on their leaves.
Try and place them into a hallway, big bathroom or open plan living space where they can be breezed by the front door opening or be cooled by a larger space.
They will love a good, humidity misting once or twice a week (indoors)
They will love regular foliar feeding to look like those Instagram and Pinterest photos.
