as far as my knowledge take me, origin of ginger has always been from the tropical countries in asia and south america. http://www.floridagardener.com/pom/gingers.htm

NOWeedSZ... no..No...NO!!! that didn't even entire my mind. not at all!!! gingers, specially the flowers are often conversational pieces. it is always good to know their origin.
am pretty sure ur ginger is also tropical. nothing surprise me any more, specially those enthusiastic gardeners who manages to grow plants from unique environments. i guess everything is attributed to research done in getting to know specific details about certain plants.
if u notice, in most of my response to inquiry/ies, i always link to a url than explain. there is a reasons behind that: links are more informative, plus u can always bookmark or print the link/s or its content - for future references. often times, we tend to forget where certain postings are located. i save bookmarks, not only on my computer, but also on diskettes, print them and create folder/s for the print out [in case, i don't feel like turning on the computer.] or carry the folder with me when i am transplanting - to be sure i provide the right growing medium of specific plant/s.
am sorry if u got that impression... ma vie
