Hi everyone.

Sorry to have let the side down with lack of posts, but there’s been too much happening and not enough time to do everything, you know how it is. On top of everything else I’ve once again been having computer problems with vanishing files

We're still having crazy weather here with the temperatures on Thursday being 38 - 40 degrees C. followed by a cool and wet Friday with temperatures of 18 -20 degrees C. .....Crazy, crazy weather.

After studying your pictures Jaga, I've decided I'll take the two plants in Pic.3 and Pic. 9 thanks, they’ll look good in my collection.

I love the wide leaves, deep rose colouring and the fine striations of the plant in your Pic.3; does it have any Neo ‘Rosea Striata’ in its parentage? The reason I ask is that I have a seedling bred from Neo. ‘Bea Hanson’ x ‘Rosea  Striata’ which has similar striations.

The plant in your Pic. 9 appeals to me also and I think it’s the combination of the variegation and the dark colour that does it for me. Do you have a name for it please?

Is the one that Conrad asked about in Pic.2 called Neo. ‘Bea Hanson’? It seems similar to the ‘Bea Hanson’ I have although a bit different to the picture on the BCR  See: http://registry.bsi.org/?genus=NEOREGELIA&id=3076#3076

It also looks a bit like another plant  I have called Neo. ‘Gespachio’ which (just for the record) looks nothing like the one pictured on the BCR.

Here's variations on a couple of Neo ‘Gespacho (Gespacio) plants for comparison with your plant in Pic.2

Hi all, all of the above I have posted images of in previous posts so thought you would be able to work out the names, so far Nev is the only one to have a go but is incorrect for image 2&9. Both these plants have been about for a long time. Some of the others are not so easy as they are my hybrids but there are plenty of clues on other posts here. Will give you some more time to guess.

Hi all, seems no one is game to even have a go at this? so here's the answers. All the above have been shown in previous posts so plenty of clues.

1, Neoregelia 'Brazilian hybrid' - seed from Brazil that Andrew Steens grew.
2, Neoregelia 'Bob & Grace'
3, Neoregelia 'Exotica Velvet'
4, Neoregelia 'Small World' x Brazilian hybrid' - my cross
5, Neoregelia 'Tiger(baker) x 'Small World'
6, Neoregelia 'Royal Hawaiain' x Skotaks Tiger - my cross
7, Neoregelia 'Enchantment' x 'Royal Burgandy'
8, Neoregelia 'Dr Osser'
9, Neoregelia 'Kahala Dawn'
10, Neoregelia 'Royal Hawaiian' x (Rosea striatea x concentrica) - my cross

All very nice esp 3 & 7.
With all the spring rain we had, I have a lot of 1yr old neos flowering. Some of the plants maybe only have 6-8 leaves, and they are very small plants.

Yes its certainly flowering season in the southern hemisphere! Some great looking broms above Nev!. Good to see that Nid 'Miranda' flowering, im still waiting for mine to flower for the first time and does not look likely this year. really like that Neo. 'Blackout' x 'Mandela', its begging to have some hybridizing work done with it?, maybe try with your last image Neo. 'Bea Hanson' x 'Rosea Striata' ? what you think Nev. Theres still no dark zonated good neo so there's a challenge as well. I also have always wondered about creating a dark neo with white fleaking? - maybe try with 'Marble throat'.

Cheers Jaga, PS will add a few more soon here.

This ones my first variegate attempt in 2008, Neo (carolinae x concentrica x carolinae) x 'Barbarian'. This is the 2nd generation, i got 4 identical variegated plants, then 8 that all came out different, some still variegated but it has proved that this plant is not 'stable' yet. as its flowering just cant resist doing some hybridizing.

Hi all, another in flower. An attempt to get a darker Neo with zonation. hasn't really turned out that way but have just recrossed it with Neo 'Norman bates'. This will be at the expense of the dark colour I suspect.
Skotaks Tiger x leprosa

Hi everyone.

Jaga - I managed to breed a few variegated plants with one of my early crosses and let me say it was more good luck than good management as I wasn't expecting any variegated plants. However as they matured I found them like many of my other variegated pants to be quite unstable and rarely the same with successive pups and for this reason I've lost interest in them.

On the other hand I have intentionally bred a few radial reds which I find quite stable, but then after while they all start to look the same and my interest goes out of them as well. Maybe I'm just turning into a cranky old man who's getting too hard to please, however my main interest lies in colour and better still if it also has a bit of form. Just the thrill of knowing I created something is enough to keep me interested and I only do it for my own enjoyment.

Just for the record, I've been visiting the Garden Web Bromeliad Forum recently (the one we were previously members of before this one was started) and unlike this forum, interest there seems to be picking up with a few of the "old guard" like Gonzer, Rick, HDD and others still posting along with a few more new members. I must say it's just like old times again although I'm not a fan of the new layout which was changed when Garden Web combined with Houzz. However once I learned to find my way around it, it's not to bad.

Anyway, back to now; and I'd like to share some pic's of a cross I did about five years ago of Neo. 'Bea Hanson' x ' Rosea Striata' and from which I got quite a few nice radial reds of varying colours.

These last two are the pick of them I think, and my personal favourite is the last one with the dark pink "fingernails" which appear iridescent at certain times of the day and really draw your attention to the plant.

Hi all for some reason there was no response here to Nev's images of some of the nice radial broms. I think we all got side tracked with how to keep to forum going.
Anyway Nev you do have very good looking Neos there, well done. Your right, striated radial markings do in most cases seem a lot easier to stabilise.
The 5 th image down, right side plant + the wider leafed 2nd image from the bottom stands out for me.

Have you considered registering any of these?

John.
