Spent some quality time with John recently and was greatly surprised AND excited when he offered me this pup, a plant I've had eyes on for years; a variegated Vriesea pseudoatra.

Hi everyone.

Gonz - It's always great to finally get a plant you've been chasing, especially when you've been chasing it for a long time. Now comes the waiting game while you wait for it to flower.

Is this a naturally occurring variegated plant or was there some human intervention in its manufacture? It's certainly something different.

Another question; Is John Arden using this in a breeding programme?

Don't forget to cross it off your wish list so you can now go chasing the next one on the list.

All the best, Nev.

No pics folks as I (like an idiot) had the camera set to 'video'. That's a straight shooting variegated plant with no human intervention involved. As it is so painfully slow John, as far as I know, has never used it for breeding purposes. Here's a few pics of John and myself from a few years ago. I'm going back over next month for another visit/chat and will make sure the camera's settings are correct.
