Re: gingers....Cathy!


Donna,
Curcumas have a natural dormant period - lift and store dry or just barely
damp over winter, about 55 F.  Some Curcumas are easily rotted if damp
during dormancy.  If you want something to bring in as a house plant get an
evergreen ginger - Hedychium, Alpinia, most Costus, and some Zingibers.
