Hi everyone.

John – That’s a great looking plant with just a hint of pink blushing on the leaves and an inflorescence that can only be described as “spectacular”; what a beauty! No doubt before long it will be festooned with numerous name tags of pollen parents.

I looked it up on the BCR this morning and it seems there’s an element of mystery surrounding this plant. It seems the plant was grown in New Zealand under the formula name of (hieroglyphica x 'Pahoa Beauty') but its origin remains unknown. See: http://registry.bsi.org/?genus=VRIESEA&id=8672#8672

Interestingly, the first picture on the BCR shows it with a beautiful pink blush through the leaves while the second picture shows none and the third pic shows just a hint of the blushing. So it looks like its colour could be dependent on the amount of light it receives, what do you think John?

All the best, Nev.

Greetings all, Nev, the plant had fantastic colour in full sun but once it flowered + its now Autumn, it seems to have faded away. Vriesea flowering seasom is almost over here, I only have my Vr ospinea var gruberi in flower so have used the pollen off Vr 'Hawaiian Sunrise' on to it, yesterday. Hoping the Hawaiian sunrise flower and the purple ( genes from Pahoa Beauty) will give a interesting result if it takes, as not that many do.

From a pup to flowering has taken 6 years.

Cheers-John.
