- Grown, packaged and shipped exclusively by Wekiva Foliage. Turmeric is a tropical plant. Its rhizomes have traditionally been used both in food preparation and as a medicine. It is a member of the ginger family (Zingiberaceae) and, like ginger, is considered a spice. Another feature it shares with ginger is a showy flower (although the showy part is actually a bract, not the true flower), which means an additional use for the plant is as an ornamental.
- It is fairly easy to grow turmeric. This is not a plant that you prune. Your main jobs are to keep it well watered and to shelter the rhizome from cold temperatures.
- Make sure the soil in the pot never dries out. This can be a challenge because the soil in containers dries out more quickly than soil in the ground. Since turmeric likes humid conditions, increase humidity further by misting the plant's leaves during periods of hot, dry weather.
- In the far North, give your turmeric plant full sun. The further south you are, the more it is advisable to afford it some afternoon shade.
- Because of this plant’s appetites, it is best to avoid planting it near members of the nightshade, or Solanaceae family that includes eggplants, peppers, and tomatoes. They are also voracious feeders that crave nitrogen, and may compete for nutrients.

"Came in perfect condition--thank you!"
"Amazing Plants! I was so happy to see these way larger than the plants pictured because I know how slow most cycads grow."
"This is the first time I've ever ordered plants online, so I had no idea what to expect. When I saw the description of 'comes in a 4" growers' pot' I figured I'd be getting some fairly small plants--nope! The bamboo palms were fully 2' tall from root to top leaf, and perfectly healthy. All 5 plants were VERY well secured in their box, to the point that the bottom layer was even spray-foamed to the cardboard! I couldn't ask for a better experience and I'm so excited to see these plants grow. Five stars!"
"Thrilled with my purchase! This seller went above any beyond! The packaging was very careful, the plants are so much bigger than I expected, and I was given more than what was depicted in the item description. 10/10 all round!"
"This is SO BEAUTIFUL! Packaging was perfect and efficient, plant was in excellent condition. I'm in love with this plant and I will definitely order more."
