I know many Florida gardeners grow gingers but unfortunately I'm not one of them and I'm not familiar with them at all but I thought maybe one of y'all might recognize Kristi's plant pictured here: The thread "Looking for a positive ginger ID please?" in Plant ID forum and be able to help her with an ID. Thanks in advance for any advice/suggestions you can give her.

With a lot of the Gingers, it is almost impossible to ID w/out seeing the bloom. I was gifted 4 yesterday, and the grower laughed that he couldn't be sure which was which w/out seeing the bloom. The pots had been rearranged & he hadn't tagged them.
Blessed are the Quilters for they are the Piecemakers.
