I found this plant in Peru on the eastern flank of the Andes near the Rio Huallaga. It was not in flower at the time of collection and I had no idea what species it was, but it had a mature basal inflorescence so I collected some seeds. It has turned out to be a spectacular, profuse flowering form of Costus claviger, or something very close to that species. It produced flowers for me at about 5 feet in height growing in a large pot. For me it has only flowered terminal, but likely has the ability to flower both ways since it was found with a basal inflorescence.
