I’m trying to identify this plant for my sister. It’s growing in Florida
Looks like a pine cone ginger.
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.
zingiber zerumbet, shampoo ginger also called pine cone ginger
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.
