    Bought six Lesser Galangal plants, they arrived in two days in great shape. Very pleased with service & how professional they were.Hoping I can grow them in south Louisiana along with my tumeric & ginger to help with my cancer. Thanks so much! ClydeKeating.

      Plants are doing great, I can’t wait for them to mature. My tumeric is maturing now & I can’t believe how well it is doing. Plants are 5 ft.plus tall and are producing 4 lbs plus per plant, I expect the same from my ganangal next fall. There is no doubt that the holistic treatment I am using now has been very helpful with for the cancer,

    I’ve been trying to grow galangal from organic rhizomes purchased from the local food co-ops with no success. Happy to find plants for sale at SM. They arrived on time and looking very healthy last autumn and have thrived during a long winter indoors in northern MN. I expect they will explode like the ginger and turmeric once they get out side.
