First I say sorry for my failure for conducting an memorable and useful Zingiberaceae week.
Unfortunately my laptop hard disk have some errors since last month and now I am trying to recover the data. But only 10% data recovered so far.
Anyway Herewith I am sending some photo of gingers. Please join all the members in this Zingiberaceae week with fruitful uploads.
Before that I should recommend to all the members to visit Calicut University Botanical Garden for understanding and observing the ginger beauty.
A big collection of more than 200 gingers were conserved in three ginger houses as well as field under Dr. M. Sabu, Professor and Zingiberaceae Specialist.
It is the largest ginger collection in India. The best time for garden visit is July-August-September.
Thank you … for showing some very beautiful Zingiberaceae members.
Thanks a lot … for sharing this treasure.. I wish maximum recovery of your hard disk data..
Really good collection … Looking forward to see your live collection in some near future.
