False Cardamom is a great evergreen ginger, fantastic for filling mid-ground spaces in tropical or subtropical gardens. There are two species that share the common name of False Cardamom – Alpinia nutans and Alpinia mutica. The species are very similar in appearance, so similar that they can be difficult to tell apart. As such, this article will treat them as the same, as care is identical.
Easy to grow. Does best in rich, free-draining soil in full sun or part shade. Water regularly in summer, keep an eye out for mealybug. Use quality fertilizer such as Troforte or Organic Link regularly to produce strong and dense growth.
