Scientific name: Curcuma alismatifolia
Synonyms: Decorative Ginger, Decorative Ginger, Java Tulip, Hidden Ginger, Lotus Ginger, Summer Tulip

  • Attractive, long lasting flowers
  • Easy-to-Care-For Houseplant
  • Perfect pop of colour
  • Ideal gifting plant

Siam tulips are a beautiful departure from the usual spring and summer tulip varieties. Highly sought after for its eye-catching, vividly coloured flowers that last for weeks. Curcuma alismatifolia was once a rare tropical plant, but now they are commonly given as gifts and can be found in full bloom as a stunning tabletop feature.

Although it originates in the tropics, this perennial plant does well in the house, even in cooler climates. As a houseplant, it thrives in a container. Siam tulips thrive in a bright, shady spot with plenty of humidity, so long as you plant them in a potting mix that drains well.

Keep in mind that these plants will die back and drop their leaves as autumn approaches because they will be entering their dormant period. It's not over yet; give your plant a little water every now and then during the winter, and come spring, you should see new growth. You should repot your Siam tulip now so that it can get ready for its next flowering season.

All in all, these plants are wonderfully low-maintenance and simple to care for, making them perfect for a novice indoor gardener who wants to try their hand at something new.

Enhance the beauty of the plant and your space by placing it in a modern planter. 

Please note: Siam Tulips are considered toxic to pets.

Follow these care tips to keep your Siam tulip happy and healthy.

Water: Keep evenly moisty, though avoid soggy soil. Think damp towel.
Light: Bright filtered light is best, direct sunlight will damage your houseplant.
Humidty: Average to high humidity is ideal.
Fertiliser: Feed with a balaced feed throughout the growing season of Spring through Summer.
