I bought this beautiful Curcuma cultivar during SGF 10.

The 1st photo was taken on 17 Jul. Within 3-4 days, the spear-liked inflorescence of reddish bracts grew to what was shown in photos 2 and 3. In the 4th photo taken on 31 Jul, the yellow flowers within the reddish-pink bracts appeared and the final 3 photos taken on 1 Aug showed how the flowers look like.

It's impressive, isn't it?
