Hi all. I bought this plant today under the name “ Aechmea blumenavii small green form”. The leaves are 30 cm long and the flower spike reaches 40cm. I don’t believe the label. Has anyone know this form? I think it might be a green form of candida, but the blue flowers are a difficult one to place. Nothing in the FCBS fits this one under the species. I will welcome any information.

Hi Conrad,

I suggest it may be Aechmea organensis...? Or at least looks like those I have. If diameter of entire plant is larger than 30cm, then may be the large form. I have a small form with diameter 15cm.

Kind Regards,
Erik

Thanks Erik. I apologize that the photos are so bad. Will take better ones with something for scale. I will post then soon. That might clarify the situation.

oragenensis could be but i'm still investigating.
