One of the best neo's in the show IMO, Neoregelia Totara Gold.

Not that I'm in any way bias towards radial reds   Wink  this plant from Totara Pete is a great hybrid!

OK, now for some more neo’s  Tongue

The midi size neos are gaining popularity here, and for Cool Broms we had a new class just for these midi neos.

It was a fantastic show; well organized, with great displays, talks and tours! The Kiwis can be proud of a job well done.  So nice to put faces to so many names, and see what NZ hybridizers are up to.  We were shown wonderful hospitality everywhere we went, and returned home exhausted but happy.  I'll post some photos as soon as I have time to sort through all of them.

It was great to host yourself, Ken and all the other overseas visitors, Lisa. I think that's what made it so special - having so many from Australia, USA, South Africa and South America visiting to see us Kiwis and our broms. As with anything this scale, not only is it A LOT of work to organise and make sure things run well with around 250 participants, but you soon learn you can never please everyone 100% of the time. While most people went home very happy, we will learn from a few small things that can be improved - and all going well provide another great occasion in 10 years time. Hope to see many of you back then - along with a few other forum friends !  Wink

Many of my favorites have already been posted, so I'll try not to repeat too many.

The show room, with Vr. ospinae v. gruberi (or should I say Ericgoudae ospinae v. gruberi?) in front:

Lisa, I must've had at least 10 people ask the same question to me on the desk..."what's the stunning pink one with the flower in the display?!? "...You are close with Canistrum, but it's actually Wittrockia cyathiformis, grown by Chris Paterson. He said he thought it was some kind of Neo, and grew it alongside them in near full sun, hence the nice pink flush...until it flowered and he got a shock ! We said he should've put it in the show, as it looks so good, but it has a broken leaf or two behind apparently ?

Yeah Andy, you're right because I was looking at the multiple inflo's that are stuck BEHIND it! Sneaky trick to do that so early in the morning. It looked like something John A. would've done.

*whew*.  Now looking at it I can see what you mean with those bright red paddles behind.  Just reminds me that I need to work a bit harder to get a roezlii.  Such a cool species.

That's why I made sure to say it was a decorative arrangement rather than a single mounted specimen.  Lots of extra spikes in there, but the plant is very cool either way. 

So that other one is just plain Witt. cyathiforme? I bought one of those many years ago, and it not only never bloomed, but the foliage never looked anything like that!  No red, no vase shape.  It was growing alongside my Neos for a long time, and the rosette remained an open, mottled green rosette, much like Nid. fulgens.  I finally gave up waiting for it to do anything and chucked it out to fend for itself in the underbrush.  This morning I went looking for it, and the clump is still alive.  Guess I'll pot up a pup and try again.   Roll Eyes
