For two plants. Excuse the ants on the photos but both photos were taken of plants in the wild in Costa Rica. I have others Costus species, but can't find the names of these two.Neither is 'flannel backed'

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I would try sending the photos to David Skinner has a great knowledge of these gingers. Good Luck
