Cliff ginger fern, also known as monkey ginger and cliff fern, is mainly distributed in China, India, and Ryukyu. Taiwan is mostly grown on low-middle-altitude mountain rocks or tree trunks. Its leaves can grow to 15-20 cm wide and 50-80 cm. It has a long, pinnate leaf on the upper part and a large fan-shaped part at the base, which can be used to collect water, fallen leaves, dust, and other nutrients for growth. It has thick and long transverse stems like ginger. It often grows on tree trunks or rocks. It needs sufficient sunlight. Too dark places will make it difficult to grow. The thick rhizomes are cylindrical and covered with brown scales. Now, some people use it as a hemostatic and strengthening agent, which is a well-known Chinese herbal medicine.
