Hi everyone.

Reginaldo - What a great surprise to see something poking up out of the grass like this.

Thanks for sharing.

All the best, Nev.

I suppose this is no different from seeing Heliconia's growing in the storm drains in Malaysia but its pretty special to us all when its not the norm Reginaldo thank you. Nice of you to stop and share this, got to wonder what else is lurking in that grass. Is this one of the fruiting varieties ? I know the first time I saw Heliconia flowering I found a safe place to park up & was on the road side with the camera and all the locals wondered what all the fuss was about.
Thanks, Jaga

Hi all,

The fruit of this species is not edible Jaga, it is small (10 cm) and very acidic.
