  another non-aroid question

dear aroiders,

i hope you can help me in regards to gingers (zingiberaceae) and
alstroemeria (alstroemeriaceae).

Both of the Gingers you mentioned go dormant in the fall for me. I keep
them in the basement, 60 F dry and dark. When they show growth 3-4
months later they get repotted, watered and given good light. They then
get moved outside after the last chance of frost. They should flower by
mid summer in the shade.
