Grown for its unique alternating brown and white banding on the stems, Bamboo Costus looks like real bamboo. It makes a great accent plant when grown in a large pot on the patio or sunroom. Also called spiral ginger, it has upright stems with a bit of a spiral near the tips. Unusual red and yellow flowers emerge from the base of mature plants. Grow in bright, indirect light in moist, rich soil.
