One of my favourite bromeliads .
Have been growing it for over 10 years.
Amazing at how different it can look when grown soft and fed .

Michael,

The hard grown version would be my favorite, I'm glad to see some of your pictures.

I would love to see some more.

Thanks,

Rick

Hi Michael,

H. leopoldo-horstii is one of my favourites too.  I just love that gothic heavy metal look when it's grown hard. 

Here's my one.  It gets full sun from early morning until around 2pm and has coloured back up nicely after loosing a little bit in the middle of winter.

If that particular clone looks familiar, it should.  Thanks for a beaut pup 18 months ago!

Cheers, Paul
