    Could be a relative of Conopholis americana but doesn’t really quite look right for that…or perhaps a bromeliad trying to bloom but then where are the leaves? Some ferns also have a pine cone like bloom.

    Thanks to everyone who responded. Having seen internet images of the pine cone ginger, we see that’s exactly what it is, and helping us to identify it is very much appreciated.
