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.

I am taking pictures and videos since a long time, just as an amateur and for fun. Since I’m living on a boat year around my equipment has to be small and robust – so no big “bodies” and lenses.
I enjoy sharing what I see and experience.
