well it is not a tillandsia post.

I gather Guzmania used to be popular? but not so much now.

I have had this about 3 weeks, G Sun Kissed.  In the pic I took when I got it, I see some white flowers, and here are some a few days ago.  

I haven't seen any open though?  Do they open? at night?  for that matter , do any flowers in Bromeliads open at night?  

Thanks Mike

Mike,

I'm not sure when Guzmania flowers open, I don't mind them.

I have Werauhia sanguinolenta flowering at night at the moment, I've seen some Alcs, Tills and Vrieseas that flower at night.

Cheers,

Rick

Some Guzmanias do open at night.  I was told by another hybridizer that you have to be up at 4:00 AM if you want to pollinate them, but I've seen others that were open during the day. 

Werauhias are also night owls, as Rick suggests.  Most of the foliage (glyph-type) Vrieseas open in the evening, although if they are hybrids with other species in the mix you may get daytime bloom.
