little about Costus
Until now I have been at a loss for words about Costaceae. They
are a fantastic group of plants. Many will recognize these plants as spiral Gingers
for their growth habit of corkscrew stems. Beyond that signature pattern, there
are many different species of Costaceae.
After I got my first Costus, I couldn't stop at only one. The variety
of plants in the genus makes collectng an exciting pursuit.
