Hi All,

Just wanna share the recent flowering of my Costus laterifolius that was recently in flower that was grown in my new balcony.

Hi Patty,

Yes, this is the first time I saw both the terminal and basal blooms at one go with my real eyes. Only got to see before only on pictures!

Unlike the showy bracts of heliconias, the flowers of costus last one day only.

Hope you like it!
