Growing instructions:
If Red Wings are planted together, space them at least 5 ft apart. Dig the soil 1 ft in diameter for heliconia and ginger planting. Good black/ red soil mixed with dried manure and compost are good. Level the land so that water does not stagnate at the base. The rhizomes are large and should be planted not more than 12 inches deep. Do not heap soil at the base as leaves sprout from the rhizome. Water well after planting. Thereafter only when the soil is drying out. Once the leaves have sprouted water well and ensure there is no stagnation around the base of the plant. Heliconia and gingers should start sprouting leaves within 3-4 weeks. Flowering will start after around 8 months. Use dried organic manure 4-5 times a year. NPK 10-10-10 can be used once a year after the plant has attained a year in maturity. The flowering stalks should be cut at the base to promote new stalks and flowering.
