How to care for your Zingiber Malaysianum Chocolate?
Zingiber Malaysianum Chocolate will be perfectly fine in a spot with semi shade or filtered indirect sunlight. Try to avoid direct and harsh sunlight at all times.
Zingiber species like to keep it moist. Therefore watering your plant regularly is recommended. Make sure the soil doesn’t dry out in between waterings.
Zingiber Malaysianum Chocolate prefers a soil mixture which can retain water properly without staying soggy. Try mixing potting soil with some perlite and even some pine bark. Or try out our Basic Aroid Mixture for your plant.
Zingiber are not too picky plants. In an average house hold they’ll be fine and can continue to grow. Generally a humidity of at least 50% is recommended.
In the summer months you can fertilise the plant once every other week. In the colder and winter months no fertiliser is needed. Please always check the instructions on your own fertiliser if it has other care instructions.
The best time to repot is during the beginning of the growing season. Check if your plant is root bound in it’s nursery pot. Then it’s time to move it to a bigger size pot of around 2 cm extra.
The Zingiber is considered non-toxic for humans and animals.
