I too had captured the same plant last year and posted on the forum, but is unidentified as yet:
Hope to get it IDed….

On searching, both species posted by me today look like Alpinia vittata.
Had posted them for expert validation.

Thank you …, I take the ID as Alpinia vittata, this was a long pending one….
I missed the Walk, else we would have met, it would be nice to meet you…

Kindly validate.

Another possibility is Alpinia luteocarpa, the Red Bamboo Ginger.
Experts please validate.


It is not A. luteocarpa. I have no idea.


I think it may be Alpinia vittata W.Bull, as confirmed by Prabhu Kumar ji in another post at Araceae, Arecaceae and Zingiberaceae Fortnight :: Zingiberaceae (Ginger family) :: Alpinia vittata from Hiranandani Powai, Lakeview :: ARKAUG-39
