Alpinia zerumbet is called a "shell ginger" or "shell flower" most commonly, because its individual pink flowers, especially when in bud, resemble sea shells.
Alpinia zerumbet is similar to Alpinia malaccensis and Alpinia nutans.
This species is valued for it's variegated foliage, and beautiful flowers. Gingers prefer the shaded and moist environment of valleys. If you have a shaded corner in your garden or a group of trees that make shade this will be ideal places. In-door locations where no direct sun light can burn the leaves are good places. Gingers make seeds that germinate well in warm and moist soil.
