is very popular in botanical gardens esp. australia and bermuda etc so far apart geographically yet these place grow the same exotics
is it native of india or australia ? i am never quite sure

Thattekad, Kerala


It is Zingiber sp. 


May be Etlingera elatior? Is it cultivated?

Many Thanks to …
The flowering season is long over and therefore there were no flowers. Even so, there were many birds in the evening (Indian Pitta, Orange-headed Ground Thrush etc.)
The plant did seem cultivated as it was on a private property.
Height of plant: 10 feet, erect but curved [Its specific epithet elatior means tall, which refers to the plant height.]
Habitat: Shade ++, on forest floor.
Once again, many thanks for the quick replies and identity.
