|Common name||Kahili Ginger|
|Germination||Soak the seeds for 2 hours in hot water. Soaking is beneficial in two ways; it can soften a hard seed coat and also leach out any chemical inhibitors in the seeds which may prevent germination. Sow at 1/2" in pots or trays of moist seed compost. Place in a warm place, and keep at a constant temperature of between (20ºC/68ºF, 25ºC/77ºF). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take 2-6 weeks, it can take longer, don't give up. The plant is healthier if grown not too hot, but cooler.|
