I bought this beautiful plant on a village marketplace, but I have no idea what name it possesses. If someone knows the answer, please, do help me. Thank you!!!
I think that this is Lily of the Valley. Convallaria majalis Great shade and high ground cover plant. Lucky you! Toxic to cats especially.
Looks like a plant from family Zingiberaceae.
In my humble opinion, of species Curcuma.
Perhaps turmeric, Curcuma longa.
If and when your plant produces flowers (weeks, months or even years), please post a photo and we will be able to identify with more certainty.
PS If I am correct, your plant will...
- quickly outgrow the pot you have it in now;
- require very little water in the cooler months;
- require a lot of water in warmer months and regular feeding with liquid organic fertiliser and / or seaweed tonic.
I think it’s either a musa (banana), Cana, or Ginger. It’s hard to tell between those three it being too juvenile to tell. I think I can say it at least is not a Dwarf Cavendish, that generally has a dark red staining close to the central part of the leaves, especially when young.
