As long as Tropiflora, Michaels, Eloise Beach and that crazy guy (forget his name) with all the sun grown bromeliads are there then I'll keep going to the Bromeliad Society of Broward County sale every year in March. They have lots of other vendors, but I always buy from those 4 vendors. This year I got:

Neo rothinessa
Neo kautskyi
Neo Raja
Neo Irazu
Neo Blueberry Muffin
Neo Caviar
Neo undescribed species from Santa Maria Madalena Brazil
Orthophytum burle-marxii (my most expensive plant)
Orthophytum harleyi
Puya grafii
Deut. brevispicata
Aechmea Rafa (yes, Aechmea and Neo Rafa's)

There was a lot more good plants available, but I couldn't get them all.

Hi Nick,

Great catch!  That Neo. rothinessa should be a stand-out.  I'll be keen to see how it goes under your conditions.

Cheers, Paul

Great stuff on the menu at that sale. Of all the plants that you got at least one would be a wishlister for most bromsters worldwide!

Cool Nick...what a great haul there. What does the unidentified neo species look like ? Can you post a pic for us ?
Cheers,
Graeme

This is just a quick pic I took after I got home.

Do you have a picture of your N. rothinessa?  I have a feeling Leme's photo on FCBS is overly color saturated.

Great haul indeed, Nick! Congratulations.

Might that spotty, unidentified Neo be the same as the one Michael sells as 'red spotted carch-type' from Brazil?

I agree Lisa - those images of rothinessa by Leme on FCBS hurt my eyes! Looks like someone has overly-played with the colour saturation and contrast knobs - maybe through the transfer from printed image to digital screen image. I'd like to see more photos too - please Nick?

Don't you just love that Aechmea 'Rafa'?

Both of the Rafa's are pretty small but the price was right. Eloise had lots of the rothinessa, all the same size. I was thinking they were seed grown but I forgot to ask.

Kerry, you might be right about that. Michael was buying plants from Eloise too so it's very possible. The guys from Tropiflora grabbed a few too. Eloise and Jim must have good connections!

Here are two bad shots of the rothinessa.

Here is the Orthophytum that I almost bought but I got the burle-marxii instead.

Ooooh.... I would have gone for the roseum!  How often do you see one of those? 

The price is right on the rothinessas.  I figured being a fairly recent introduction it would be a lot more pricey.  Must be from seed.
