I am posting photos of the Diospyros malabarica again because I am sold on the beauty of this tree.

As for the unknown Costus from the Costaceae Family, I bought it from a local supplier who got it from Thailand. But this species or cultivar is rather sensitive, difficult to grow and I still do not know its preference because most of the time the leaves appear slightly burnt with brown edges. However, the white flowers subtended by the red bracts was never encountered by me before this, so to me it is still unique.
