Yes, that is the Brooklyn Bridge in the picture (and no, we're not selling it)

We hear it so often: "Oh these look like such great plants, but they'll never grow in [insert the name of your cold-in-the-winter home state (like 'New York') here].​

Which is why we wanted to show you a real picture from a real customer who lives in Brooklyn, New York (and who seems to have a FABULOUS view from their window, by the way...)​

See, the trick here is to grow these things inside. Yes, the same temperatures that keep you comfortable year round are the same temperatures that will keep most Hawaiian plants happy and healthy too.​

A symbol of Hawaiian royalty, for your king or queen

Not only does the kahili ginger look cool, but they smell great as well. The 'kahili' gets its name from the fact that it resembles the royal cylindrical emblems that would accompany ancient royalty.​

Strong growth

Kahilis grow fast, and they grow prolifically. Often, the roots begin growing right out of the package before they can be purchased. So if you're worried that these will "never grow" where you live, remember that you've seen the proof: Kahilis can 'make it there' so they can make it (nearly) anywhere.​ It's up to you.

And as always, your satisfaction is guaranteed. Order from us, and you're going straight to the source!

How to grow a Kahili Ginger:

Bury the root cutting deep enough to cover it. Use a potting soil mix from the garden shop and keep it moist. After the root has sprouted, continue to keep things moist and in partial shade.  We recommend an east-facing window. If you bought the growing plant, follow the same instructions as above.  If you put your kahili outdoors during the summer, make sure it's somewhere that's shaded from direct sun. Keep the temperature between 65℉ to 85℉, and fertilize your ginger with a timed-released fertilizer or garden fertilizer according to the instructions.  Kahili's go dormant in the winter but come back in the spring.
