Very striking plant. I see them growing locally so should give them a try, I believe they like moist soil?

I aquired two tiny tubers of ZE Green Goddess in the winter and they are growing now. Tiny tiny little leaves so far, but they are growing. Hardier than you think G and yes, they like moisture in the soil. I'm not sure if they would like a bog, but I think they might. I keep my pots very wet that they are in. Green Goddess has green and white flowers. I wonder how long I will have to wait until they are big enough to flower....perhaps another 2 years.

Thanks ladies, these are tow years old, and they are growing in our bog garden, but I have seen them growing in water and in dry soil, so not fussy really!!

I just love these plants. Mine grew in water at the side of the pond, the one I use as my avatar, but I lost 90% of it during the prolonged freeze the year before last. The tiny bit I managed to save from the mushy roots is growing steadily and I will always take it out now and keep it safe if prolonged freezing is forecast.

The roots smelled so bad when I hawked it out of the pond it made T feel sick and shut himself indoors...lol
