Red Button Ginger

I have a striking Red Button Ginger plant right outside my apartment. The four foot tall stalks have a cone shaped bulb that releases one flower at a time in a spiral pattern. 

The bulb has a sweet nectar that attracted several ants.

Each flower only blooms for one day. Here you can see a withered flower, one in full bloom, and one about to emerge.

One stalk had a bulb that consistently produced twins.
