Hi Japie

That plant flowered a long time ago for me and I no longer grow it as commercial considerations ravaged my collection. I'm sure it is still being cultivated in Oz somewhere. I'm betting Pedro probably has it somewhere in his garden plus another few likely suspects who got plants from me in the past. As far as the Vriesea parent, Wow there are so many Vrieseas out there and you are probably looking at a hybrid being involved. To me I think John Arden is involved due to the beauty of the resultant hybrid. Here is an image of the northern nahoumii actually flowering to compare.

cheers Bruce

Hi guys

I got plants form Bruce and Arden (Equatorial Exotics) all grown from seed ex Chester as well as a smaller form from Brazilian seed grown on by Bruce and the Rio State look-a-like also from Bruce. Japie, I sent seed at least twice (lots of it) to Eric Gouda - see florapix and Eric's seed list. I sent a heap of different stuff last year too and will again this year, but none of this nahoumii as I didn't bloom it last summer (not enough fertiliser!). I have been too busy working on the Sharky Neos and the Tills!

Cheers, Pedro

Small form of nahoumii - nostalgia for Bruce.

Pedro

I ended up with one of these in my front yard. I gave one to my Mum years ago and it flowered and pupped so I thought I should grow 1 just to remember Bruno and our 06 trip. The larger clone is the more ornamental form.

Hi Japie,

Very nice plant you have there. I have got Alcantarea geniculata and have been patiently waiting for the past 4 years since its last blooming for another show. Hopefully soon....


Thanks to all the other suppliers of stunning photos.
