Hi all
I had a Nidularium Litmus listed on Ebay Australia and received a request from someone in USA who is very keen to buy one. It seems to have a variety of names so I've posted the photo below. Starts off deep pink and changes to blue as it ages.
Does anyone have one they'd be prepared to sell.

Is it really that color?  If I saw that on eBay, I'd be thinking "photoshop".    Roll Eyes

Yes Lisa that's its colour. Don't know how to photoshop. I'm strictly a point and click person. The only thing that would have influenced the brightness of the colour and the shine on the leaves is that I took the photo between rain showers. This plant had been in flower for a while so had changed from the reddish colour to blue. Check out the photo by Ian Hook at the Olive Branch on the Bromeliads in Australia site. Almost identical colours. Jen   Smiley

Didn't make it clear that I'm looking for one in the US to connect with the person who is chasing one. Not for me in Oz. Plenty of them around here.

I have it, it's pretty cool when it changes to that blue color, the rest of the time...
