Hi friends in TE.

Domesticated torch ginger will not get the chance to grow and blossom like this one as one will harvest the flower during the bud stage for consumption. This one was spotted in a thick bush, probably left unattended by those who planted it initially with some flowers spotted to be rotting on the ground. This flower has high commercial value in Malaysia but not in this form.

Thanks for viewing!

Hi Jusni.
Brilliant reproduction of all beauties and features of this amazing flower. DOF, lights and colours are awesome as well as cropping and POV. Bravo. Perfect, very impressive picture.

Hello Jusni,
I am not quite sure that is is the same species that we have here. This torch ginger is for decoration in Thailand. Perfect sharpness and the bright red is eye catching.

Hi Jusni
Wow, great capture of this unique blossom. The colour is amazing, I find red very hard to get just right but you did a great job. Wonderful clarity and detail.

Hello Jusni,
A gorgeous red flower shown with magnificent detail. The shape reminds me of a cabbage plant. The petals seem so shiny as they glisten in the light. Great work!!
