Presentations About Costus

As I learned more about gingers, I wanted to share what I had learned, so I gave presentations about gingers to various garden clubs and groups in the Tallahassee area. Then as I started to specialize in Costus, I was invited to give presentations at botanical gardens and at meetings of the Heliconia Society International, where I am now a board member and the web master of our rather antiquated website. Below are PDF files from some of these presentations. (NOTE: These are rather large files and will take a few minutes to download.)
