Torch Ginger is a huge plant. It grew so fast to 6 feet tall. I often trim the plant as its young rhizomes were already growing out of the tire planters where I planted them. Then I search online the name of this plant and found many things about it.
Torch Ginger is tropical perennial plant and does not need a lot of caring. The unopen flower is edible and are mostly used by Asian in cooking curries.
I have not tried cooking the unopen Torch Ginger but I will try next time I am in my garden.
