Many people know Curcuma as a delicious ingredient added in Asian dishes. It is true that “curcumin”, a substance found in the roots of specially grown varieties, is used in local cuisine and it’s also know for its medical use. However, do not eat your plants! Just let them decorate your house.
Find a lovely spot in your house where you need an eye-catching plant like Curcuma. Place it on a table, next to a corner, close to a window but avoid direct sunlight, especially during summer. Curcuma is not meant to stand under the sun during dry and warm conditions.
No special treatment is required. Water regularly and from time to time spray water on the leaves. Extra humidity in the atmosphere won’t bother it but really dry conditions may result in edge burnings. Once flowering starts it doesn’t stop. You can always cut a flower stem from its basis and decorate your vases!
