Cardamom plant is a very knotty rhizome, perennial, from which numerous fleshy radicle sprout. From that place, large numbers of stems erect, up to 2 m in height, which are involved in the petioles of leaves. These are dark and the beam onto underside pale, sessile, lanceolate and entire; measured up to 60 cm long and covered by a discreet hair from the bottom, just below the tope. It blooms in April and May. Flowers are yellowish, alternate, solitary and with a short corner, have a lip color and open in succession as the clusters in which groups are expanded horizontally at ground level. Cardamom is the fruit of a three-sided oval capsule, the size of a small walnut, divided into three chambers that contain many seeds, they are cream colored and leathery, and are used in herbal medicine as in the culinary arts.
