Could be....


BILLBERGIA ‘Collevii’

BILLBERGIA ‘Hombre’

BILLBERGIA ‘Lambada’ (best Option)

Any one else have any suggestions?

Hi Mike,

The description fits from the Bromeliad cultivar register, but that does not allow for the natural variance in the plant due to local climatic influences. I really want to create some debate. It is nice to see how one species or cultivar can differ from place to place. Even in my garden the plant grown in open ground will differ markedly from the same species grown as an epiphyte. 

What I like about your plant in the blueing / blackening on the leaf edges. Nice! The shape shows the amoena parent. A little difficult to judge size in the photos but a little bigger than amoena?

Hope someone in your area can help.

Good Luck

Conrad

Thanks for the help Conrad,

I don't have amoena amoena.  it is about the same size as one I have labeled amoena rubra, and amoena striata, and larger than amoena stolenifera alba, if those names are valid.  The latter two just bloomed, so that would aid in confirming amoena parentage for this one. 

thanks MIke
