Hi

We seem to like the same plants over and over again, but they are pretty.  And a bit of a mystery for me.  
Most of these were among a bunch of plants labelled Vriesea foliage hybrids.  I had found one like Red CHestnut, others seems like fosteriana hybrids.  here are some we got.

These seem like fosteriana hybrids to me, any other ideas.

Mike - Here is an old thread from the Garden Web you may find very interesting. It started with a question from Jack Koning about how many different Fosterianas there were and finished up with pages of information and pictures. Although there's still a lot of pic's, unfortunately quite a few have been removed also.

All the best, Nev.

thanks Nev, above is another one with some great pics

While probably not the same, the ones I post above seem to look like fosteriana and Montezuma's Gem. 

Curious, I can't distinguish between Red CHestnut and fosteriana Rubra - is there any real difference?

here is another one, very pretty, almost like Kahuna Jack
