Hi everyone.

I just though it might be interesting to start something a bit different which simply entails posting one or several pic's of your favourite plants (any genera) in alphabetical order.

Anyone can post any number of times and when it seems like plants in that alphabetical section have been exhausted we'll move on to the next letter and so on.

Just to kick it off I'll start today with plants with names starting with the letter "A"; so come on people, let's see some of your "A" plants.

Neo. 'Always Nice'

Hi all, here's some to add to the 'A' line up.

A old favourite, Neo 'Amazing Grace'. This is a plant we took from New Zealand to our garden in Malaysia, hence its size and form.

So the above plant just loves the tropical heat, here's 'amazing grace' (red form) just flowering now, not really doing that well compared to above.

neo ampulacea (variegated), this is a bit of a unknown, was imported many years ago from the usa with this label name. It seems to me to be a hybrid rather than a species. Its way to tall which is a bit of a give away, however that's the label, also I have never been able to get it to flower but if the flower was white then I would be more convinced. Anyway it makes for another favourite!

Jaga, your photo of so-called Neo ampullacea variegated was registered about 18 months ago as N. 'Charade'.

 Nev, your pic of Neo "Auroa" I think was probably (and incorrectly) imported years ago as N. 'Aurora'--it's correct I.D. is N.'Domino'. Also, there is no cultivar name of N. Aussie Dream--that's a grex name. Which sibling it is I'm not sure--would have to trawl through all the related siblings in the BCR.

Ironically, had your photos been posted on Facebook, these anomalies would probably have been picked up straight away.

Yes thanks for that Geoff, Kerry Tate and I did have a long talk about this maybe ampulacea ?, was not aware she had registered it. Its been in NZ for some years and our plant came from Peter Waters who imported it from the USA, clearly labeled ampulacea (variegated) but we doubted that even then in our early days of brom collecting. I was interested in the plant for its hybridizing potential but its never flowered for me. Its come along via some one way before the Skotak banded variegates.

What this means of course is it no longer fits into the 'A' category. Im off to label it right now Geoff, also glad to see your still keeping a beady eye on us.

Cheers John.

Hi everyone.

Geoff - Thanks for pointing that out, but I did know that plant of Domino was wrongly named and all names had been changed except the file I took that picture from. It's my fault, I changed all the names on the plants but missed some of the picture files.

I know that 'Aussie Dream' is a grex name, but that's what was on it when I bought it from the breeder's nursery a few years ago and that's what I was told the name was when I questioned it. I was given no registered name and I don't even know if it is registered, so in my opinion, half a name is better than none; at least I was able to check the parentage from that anyway.

As for Face Book, I find it difficult to navigate around that site as there are so many different sections to it and I'm not very good on computers and besides my plants don't come anywhere near the standard of most of the plants on there anyway that's why I rarely post any pictures unless I'm trying for an ID.

As for the pictures I've been posting on here, if you've been following this you would know we are down to only three or four active members and I've been posting pic's in an attempt to create a bit of interest get this forum active like it once was.

All the best, Nev.

Hi everyone.

Well that idea went down like a "lead balloon" didn't it?

Fifteen days and still just you and me posting pictures John.

I'll delve into the "B" file and find a few more pic's to post tomorrow.

All the best, Nev.

I don't know what else to add Nev, just maybe the others have no plants starting with A. Let's not give up.

Hi all, another nice selection Nev, 'Break of day' is my pick but can be quite variable, it also self sets seed which is interesting , I decided to pull apart the flower and strip the anthers away at dawn, then waited till 10am and pollinated it with 'Skotaks Tiger'
Here are 2 of the resulting plants. Cross has paid off.

Hi everyone.

Kayleen - You can post what ever you like as long as they're brom's. Mini's are fine as are broms from other genera.

I don't know if you saw another post we had going for quite a while called "Let's See Some Pictures", but if you didn't, it can be found at http://www.bromeliadforum.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=2261.0

All the best, Nev.

Kayleen, some goodies there especially the Neo,Allan Freeman, and variegates ,'Blood Plum' & 'Anick'. Anick is the only one I have out of those and its a great little miniature!, really clumps up well and goes bright red in full sun.

Better post some 'B' s my self.
