Dear members,
I am attaching the photograph received from Chennai  for ID.   Photograph taken last week  (May 5th ). For me it looks like  Alpinia calcarata.  Please confirm / suggest the ID.  Unable to get habit photo from the sender  inspite of my request..  Therefore, only one photograph available for ID.

It seems to be Elettaria cardamomum.

Looks like net images are confusing . Both species showing same type images
except for few images for Elettaria cardamomum ! However, this sp. should be 
Alpinia calcarata (Andrews) Roscoe ! Elettaria cardamomum (L.) Maton 

Thank you.

Dear All,
I had also photographed Elettaria cardamomum in June 2020 which I am posting here for reference.
Warm regards
