C. villosissimus and - Costus pulverulentus hybrid?
Chanced upon this on Dave's website. I would really love to get my hands on this divine specimen, even if it means having to travel to Costa Rica. Incidentally, Costa Rica is one of the countries with the highest biodiversity in the world. In fact, it features greater biodiversity than Europe or North American combined. This is largely due to the fact that the country bridges both North and South America, thus enabling plants and animals from both continents and the Antilles to establish themselves there. It's tropical climate and geographical makeup provides for and supports a range of habitats, from lowland rainforests to cloud forests, to tropical lakes and rivers.
