Description
 
From Guangxi where in the autumn, the 30" pseudostems with their broad sword-like leaves had fallen to the ground exposing the bright red starfish open fruit capsules nested in the dark earth.  The flowers would have been sitting right at ground level like little orchids either pink or yellowish.  This looks close to mioga but there are 43 Zingiber species in China which has slowed the ID work to a crawl.
