Beehive Ginger Blooming

Do you remember the maraca I posted a while back? Now, actual flowers are blooming from it. It took me several days to determine the flowers open more towards mid morning or noon. These plants are growing in a swampy part of the property so I had to endure lots of bugs to get these pictures. It was worth it though, the flowers are exquisite.

Hi! I'm having these young beehive buds and I'm really excited to plant these. The problem is I'm not really oriented on how to take care of these. Could you give me some advice on how to take care of these plant? Thanks. :)
Hi Maria, I don't know what the climate is like where you live so I will tell you where ours grows here in Costa Rica. This plant of ours grows wild and I give it no care. It grows in a shaded area that is very moist. It's next to a seasonal small stream. Temperatures range in the 80's during the day down to 60's at night. During the summer there is little rain, but I do not water it. I hope this helps.
