Hi there

I just got around to posting some pics of a few of the more spectacular gingers that I saw recently in Sumatra. Please have a look at the link below and if anyone can assist with a name I would be very appreciative.

Cheers, Troy.

RE: Some new gingers beautiful. Thanks for letting us see them. Unlike any I have ever seen.

RE: Some new gingers

They are both species of Etlingera. The first one might just be a form of E. elatior but I am not certain. The second one is probably more interesting botanically. Unfortunately I am on vacation now so I don't have access to literature on them. If no one else comes up with a name I will try at the end of the month.

The second one looks like E fimbriobracteata
