It looks like a Cast Iron plant, not Ginger.

Hi,
Someone else suggested that - could be right. Does anyone know if cast iron plants get rhizomes like that? I can't find any photos of a cast iron plants roots. . .

If the leaves are very then but very tough it may be CIP. Ginger leaves are thicker and will tear easily.

I didn't try to tear them, I'll check that out tomorrow, but I think they are probably tougher than a ginger leaf now that you say that.

That's probably what it is - a cast iron plant. thanks much for all the help!
