Miniature Ginger Plant

Miniature Ginger Plant

These give out little red flowers. The plant grows short from the ground. Am not too sure what it's botanical name is.

No the variegated leaves on the side is the Devil's backbone (I hope I got it right), this is a miniature ginger plant that I will have to get it's proper name, I hope Delonix would know:-)

I think it looks like a Heliconia species. I can't see the flowers very well.
I know there's many genera called "ginger". All plants are classified into families by flowers. If you can take a close up photo of the flowers I maybe able to identify the plant. : > )
