Zingiber zerumbet Sm. (Awapuhi), also known as the Shampoo Ginger, is a vigorous ginger with leafy stems growing to about 1.2 m tall. It is found in many tropical countries. The rhizomes of Z. zerumbet, have been used as food flavoring and appetizers in various cuisines while the rhizome extracts have been used in herbal medicine. This is perhaps the most versatile and refreshing of all the Ginger’s. Shampoo Ginger’s Wikipedia page is an easy and worthwhile read. We now have access to large open wild stands on private property here in Hillsborough County with prime disease-symptom-free specimens that should be able to do equally well in other Zone 9B/10 environments as they do here unattended as forest undergrowth.

Product Description

Fresh Awapuhi Juice:
While the juice off the plant is safe to drink, THIS IS NOT FOOD GRADE PRODUCT. For external cosmetics or laboratory research use only. Now that that’s out of the way, the juice is collected fresh and then cotton-cloth ‘squeeze filtered’ and bottled for refrigeration. Testing here with this substance is a new effort, but so far as of this writing we’ve had an amount out for a week now on the shelf and it still appears almost completely clear and smells perfect. Inside undisturbed cones the juices normally sit for untold periods of time, perhaps months even, so it seems a decent shelf life when air-sealed and especially when kept cold shouldn’t be a problem. The plants themselves have naturalized in huge stands as a secluded forest understory and have gone completely untended by humans for unknown years. As of yet, they’ve never even been given a nice layer of mulch let alone any sort of chemical treatment. This stand of plants is yet still truly wild shampoo ginger. Bottles are shipped via USPS Priority Mail. Supply flow is limited for now.

Plant Germplasm (definition): Any portion of genetic material that can be grown into a live plant. Examples include seeds, stem cuttings (via many methods including air layering), root cuttings, root divisions (multiplication via division), leaf cuttings, leaf fragments (in tissue culture), rooted nodes (vines), “eyes” (offshoots from potato tubers), cacti pieces, etc. The term germplasm can also be used to describe a collection of genetic resources for an organism such as as a seed collection or, for trees, a nursery. ROOT CROPS: Buy live tropical Yam (Dioscorea) plants. Edible Sweet Potato (Ipomoea batatas) tubers for sale. Order Live Malanga (Xanthosoma), Eddo & Taro (Colocasia esculenta) corms. Purchase perennial ginger (Zingiber officinale), cardamom (Elettaria cardamomum) & turmeric (Curcuma longa zedoaria) rhizomes. Selling Jicama (Pachyrhizus erosus) 'yam bean' seeds. Live Semi-Aquatic Water Chestnut (Eleocharis dulcis) bulbs shipped worldwide. Note: Typically our bulb type live products are dunked into bucket full of an aqueous (water) solution of "Myco Madness" (mycorrhizal fungi), Humic Acid & Fulvic Acid along with the PGR's Brassinolide, Indole Butryic Acid (IBA) and Naphthalene Acetic Acid (NAA) to ensure root growth is triggered. Next the germplasm materials are packed into organic Coconut Coir which itself contains natural rooting hormones. If you intend to eat the roots you'll be ordering include a note and the roots won't be dunked in the PGR solution (which is more effective than compound powder or gel even though water doesn't 'stick' to it).
