Variegated Shell Ginger, aka Alpinia zerumbet ‘Variegata’, is a stunning plant with strikingly yellow variegated leaves that are sure to be a conversation starter. This unique tropical is native to East Asia and has long arching stems, each producing several lance-shaped leaves that spread out and create a beautiful display of colour.

The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.

As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.

Pro tips

Although this is just an ornamental ginger, it is non-toxic to both humans and pets! The variegation varies a lot in this variety of ginger, but keeping it in bright light will produce the ideal variegation.

Care Guide

How to take care of Variegated Shell Ginger

They enjoy some direct sun, but they'll also do well in bright, indirect light. It is best to place this plant somewhere where it will receive some nice morning sun, or a couple hours of afternoon sun, and then indirect light the rest of the day.

They will do best in bright light. A nice bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that is right next to a window, either with or without blinds, depending on if the plant can handle sun. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

Allow the top quarter of soil to dry before watering again. This usually takes about 2 - 3 days in an average home environment. It may vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but once you notice its leaves beginning to curl up slightly, it is time to water again.

They like a high humidity environment, give them a mist daily or as often as possible. Alternatively, you can put them around a humidifier. Although they won't die if they don't receive enough humidity, their leaves may have some dry, crunchy, or yellow edges.

You can feel comfortable having this plant around your home in the potential case where your pet feels like nibbling on it. However, we typically recommend keeping your pets from eating any of your houseplants.
