I got the seeds several years ago from a reputable source. Plants are flowering now, and I need to confirm if they are really Cardamom (Elettaria cardamon) or othe Elettaria or Alpinia species. TIA

Carlos

It doesn't look quite right to me. It may be "false cardamom" - Alpinia nutans. Look at this:
