Caring for Hedychium
- Reduce watering in the winter.
- Water well in the summer but avoid water logging conditions.
- Harsh sunlight from the afternoon may cause curling of leaves, so, avoid keeping in the strong sun.
- Do not remove the dead leaves in the winter, they act as a protection for the rhizomes if you want the flowers next season also.
- Re-pot in the bigger pot when you see the crowded leaves in a container.
- Use organic pesticides or fungicides if you find any pest attack or disease.
Dig up the rhizomes in late summer to early fall and store them for the next season.
