Red Torch Ginger

Red torch ginger plant.
The flame is lit
Can you feel the warmth
Radiating from the heart

The showy pink flowers are used in decorative arrangements while the flower 

buds are an important ingredient in the Nonya dish laksa. In North Sumatra, 
the flower buds are used for a dish called arsik ikan mas
