Costus stenophyllus is a very different looking Costus, easy to recognize even when not in flower. It has tall straight patterned stems and narrow leaves with a look that gave it the common name of "bamboo Costus". It is from the Osa Peninsula area of Costa Rica, where I have always seen it growing in forest understory on well drained ridges or steep slopes. It is a basal bloomer with brigth red cone-type inflorescence and pale yellow tubular flowers.
