Care & Maintenance
PLANTING AND CARE OUTDOORS - Dig a hole approximately twice as wide as your new plant’s root ball and deep enough so that the top of the root ball is parallel with the ground level, this is very important, planting the tree deeper than the original topsoil line may severely damage the tree. Place the plant in the hole and ensure that it is situated upright, use the excavated soil to backfill around the root ball, tamp down to ensure air pockets are eliminated, thoroughly soak with a hose as you fill in the dirt. Take great care to not leave any gaps or air spaces around the root ball. A 2-3 inch layer of organic hardwood mulch is strongly recommended, it will help retain moisture and discourage weed growth. Apply the mulch over the entire planting area.
WATER your red ginger deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish a strong root system, increase frequency during extremely hot days, you should always verify the top 2-3 inches of soil, if dry to the touch is time to water, you can reduce the frequency of watering once it is established.
LIGHT, thrives in partial shade, can tolerate full sun.
FERTILIZE no need to fertilize right away, applying a slow-release, 180 days duration, well balanced fertilizer is probably the simplest solution and least expensive.
