This is a really cool plant growing in Orlando, Florida. It is growing in moist shade. It was about a foot tall. Sorry the pictures are not very good. Could not get a good pic w my phone. Thank you.

Hmmm... Maybe. If not it is very close. None of the hundreds of plants I saw growing there had multiple flowers tho so???

Maybe Globba obscura http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/53323/ and this is the very last bloom in a raceme so the other blooms are all gone with the fruiting showing. Basically the flower is finished.

That's it!! Thank you! Can you give me any more tips for growing it? Does it tolerate drying out at all? Does it tolerate any sun?

It needs no help in growing - it spreads by seeds and runners and lives in the ground, on what mother nature provides.
