a new find

(Updated) Yet another encounter with unidentified costuses at SBG's ginger gardens. The label for the one above read Costus 'orange bud'. The green cone below wasn't labelled but closely resembles the Costus arabicus. However, the distinguishing traits are most noticeable from the cone. This is more slender and it appears more reddish around the bracts whereas the arabicus is generally green with reddish colouration inside the bracts.
