We grow a variety of Heliconias, ornamental Gingers, and other plants in the order Zingiberales. Most are available as bare root divisions (rhizomes) - which you're welcome to come and dig yourself - and a few are readily available in pots. We have several other species not on the list, and they'll eventually be available when clumps grow larger, and have flowered

We usually don't ship rhizomes, but shipping of small amounts of rhizomes could be arranged to addresses in the USA only; just email us. For tips on growing these plants from seed, please check our article "Growing Heliconias from Seed" or just click here. This article we originally published in the Bulletin of the Heliconia Society of Puerto Rico.

You may dig your own rhizomes at Vivero Anones! Just call us to make arrangements. On the day and time we schedule, you may bring your own tools and bags, old jeans and boots, and you're off to a good start! Rhizome digging is not an easy task for some, so we'll always be happy to help.

As we're in the process of closing the Vivero to the general public, we can accept plant trades with other collectors, or a fee to cover costs. Please email us for further information.

Check our Photo Galleries of flowers! Enjoy beautiful photos of these tropical flowers checking these links: Heliconias and Gingers. For other beautiful heliconia photos, please check the website of the Heliconia Society of Puerto Rico,

EN ESPAÑOL: Tenemos una gran variedad de heliconias y jengibres ornamentales para intercambio por otras especies, o a cambio de la donación sugerida indicada en la tabla.
