Artist's Description

Close-up of Zingiber zerumbet Sm.(Awapuhi), also known as the Shampoo Ginger (Malay = “Lempoyang”), 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 traditional medicine.
I took this shot in Grenada, Caribbean in the rainforest. This plant grows wild AND has been cultivated as well.
