Curcuma amada? Mine's in the Phils - also have Curcuma aeroginosa.
One request - can you trade krachai (Boesenbergia rotunda/chinese fingerroot) for it? I cannot find anything fresh in the markets back in the Phils - everything is dried and sliced or powder form. I need at least somewhat fresh rhizomes so I can plant some. Thank you.
PM me.

I can trade finger root for it! The C. Aeroginosa. I do have the mango ginger too. Anyone have black turmeric? Tried growing it but the rhizomes rotted. Will trade! Have zedoary ginger, K galangal, mango ginger, finger root, lesser and greater galangal, false cardamom, Jamaican spicy ginger, shampoo ginger, regular turmeric and ginger, amphomorphous galangal. Not all are tradable right now but for the aeroginosa or black turmeric I'll see what I can do. Think blk turmeric is C. paviflora/paviolina??? Could be wrong. Its intensely black/purple. What aeriginosa you have? The blue or lime colored?

C aeruginosa - bluish grey rhizome
My C caesia - dark charcoal grey colour? It's what I call black turmeric?
I'm also trying to chase down Curcuma purpurascens? If you have it? I'll do some googling about what I need to do to be able to do a legit swap.


Yes I can find all these on ebay but after countless throwing about money and just getting plain ginger or worse rotting rhizomes I'll take my chances with a swap.


Up for this thread - we need tips from Vernmented and bsbullie how to go about legit shipping/swapping live rhizomes from Phils to Florida.

I only have experience with seed imports. Good luck guys. If it works out share the process. I would love to get some rare rhizomes.

Dimpleslee I would love to trade you something for both curcumas you have! Idk what the parameters are of legal shipping. Pm me and we'll figure something out if you want.

Druss I'd definitely be interested in the Australian native ginger. Please pm me too if you like.

I once ordered C. caesia from Thailand on eBay and it was legit and straight black. Rhizomes looked great at first but totted out on me.

Have many of the species I mentioned in my first post on this thread to trade!
