This picture was taken on 15th July 2009 a couple of months after I first planted the spiral ginger (Costus speciosus) . Note the small flower pot that I used to plant it.
I took this photo of the spiral ginger plant in my house in Sitiawan last week. It has grown really big but has not started to flower yet. I notice that the shoots are growing upright instead of spiral. I wonder how big the plant would grow if I took some of the shoots to plant on the ground.
