Interesting info! I really didn't think it had the characteristics of a Ginger, but was thrown off by the common name. Thank you for clearing that up. Also, when I saw the stems It looked familiar to me and I couldnt put my finger on why. Now I know it is because of the likedness {?} to the Wandering Jew. I think I made that word up, but couldn't thinnnk!!!! So thank you. Now we know for sure it will propagate easily. I wonder how it will do in his front porch for the winter.. if we have much of one. Funny story about one of my Gingers. I dug up my fence line plantings of Canna Lillies, to remove said fence ; then distributed them to two of my neighbors. Well, guess where all my White Orchid Gingers are???? IN THEIR GARDENS!!! I got them mixed in together!! I have since informed both of them, that come next Spring... I want 1/2 of them back! Now they are blooming! ARGH, atleast I can admire them .. when I visit. Yeah, I know they look nothing alike and I think one is bulb and one is a corum??? Heck I don't know... they were interplanted and guess they came out together and I certainly wasn't paying attention when I just heaped them in a pot. and said , "HERE ya go! Oh well, live and learn and spread the beauty! Accidentally or not.

Dichorisandra thyrsiflora is not a Ginger even though the common name says differently. It is actually closely related to Tradescantias (Spiderworts or Wandering Jews). The common name is different in many parts of the world and is almost meaningless. The botanical name is important because it is the same..... any where in the world.

Sorry for the misspelling
Comment by Juliet Wilson on July 24, 2013 at 12:12pm
Scott you are so right. Looking at the pictures online it is a epiphyllum oxypetalum. Its also called queen of the night or Dutchman's pipe. Thaks so much. I put it on the porch and now the leaves look boiled. Its back inside and I cant X wait for it to bloom. Its suppose to be fragrant but it only blooms at night.

It looks like those I saw on line. I am going to try a bright spot on the porch but no direct sun. Hopefully it's fliwer is a big as a plate as one person described hers.

Looks like an Epiphyllum oxypetalum or another species or variety of Epiphyllum.

A New Garden in Dayton

The yard was a blank slate and I longed for plants; so I started a garden. Food and flowers will grace this place soon.
