    Actually greg, the white and purple things at the base of the inflorescence are the true flowers of the plant.

    Would the things on top be bracts?

    mindmaze128,

    My girlfriend had the same ginger species bought from Home Depot. It brought w/ it a ton of gnats, and died shortly. (It appears that most of the plants purchased from that store had problems.)

    Anyway, we returned the pot as it was covered by the 1 yr guarantee. I thought it was funny that when the clerk opened up the bag, gnats flew out even tho the plant had been dead for at least a month. I still have the gnat infestation in my house from it.

    The plant was in bloom when she bought it.
