My H. horsfieldii has set seeds. This is an unusual epiphytic ginger, similar in growth habot to H. longicornutum, but with different blooms.

I am going to attempt to grow the seeds. It should be fun. Don't have a photo yet, will get one tomorrow. Looks pretty neat

Here is the seed pod. It looks like an alien. The red is actually the seeds, the orange is the split-open pod

I planted my longicornutum seeds; thought I had crossed it with H. coronarium; 2 years now; so far it's almost 2 ft tall but no flowers yet! I might need to increase the light.
