The flower is called Padein Ngo in the Burmese language because the flower is so simple and beautiful that it is combined with branches so that a florist cannot even carve the flower-shaped flower.

Padein Ngo flowers (dancing ladies ginger) are grown commercially in Pindaya, Danu Self-Administered Zone, southern Shan State, and are now in full bloom, said local farmers.
The flower is called Padein Ngo in the Burmese language because the flower is so simple and beautiful that it is combined with branches so that a florist cannot even carve the flower-shaped flower.
Mi Mi Khaing, a flower grower, said that she received K100 per flower last year and K1,000 for a bouquet of ten flowers.
The flower is harvested and sold for three months: July to September, she added.
“The dancing ladies ginger flower is a type of egg, with 15 to 20 seedlings per egg. When the harvested flowers run out in the month of Thidingyut (October), the eggs are left in the ground and kept as a species for the next year.
“The seeds of the flower are being sold at K1,500 per pound, and the flower is very suitable to grow on a farm privately and commercially as it provides extra income for a family,” said the flower grower Mi Mi Khaing. —Moe Moe Htwe/ GNLM
