Hi Kayleen, where did you get this fine looking plant from ? does appear on 1st glance to look like a Ananas, there are a number that are albomarginated.
Maybe completely wrong. John

Hi everyone.

Kayleen - Can we see a side shot and perhaps a close-up of the rosette please?

All the best, Nev.

Hi everyone.

Kayleen - I had a feeling I'd seen the plant you posted a picture of somewhere before. Last night it came to me, and I thought it was in my own collection of miscellaneous plants so I checked this morning and it does look similar to your plant. However my plant is only very small as it came to me as a very tiny pup with no roots and had been tossed in with a group of "swap plants" from Queensland to see how it would grow down here.

My plant is the species Orthophytum vagans and is the variegated form. I don't know how large it grows as mine is only a couple of inches high and very slow growing but you can see pictures of it in the species section of the FCBS Photo Index.

My ID may be completely wrong but that's my guess anyway.

All the best, Nev.

Spot on Nev. Thanks.

I found a label when I was watering today. I had potted up 6 for our sale but had only put the one tag in as they are so different to other broms. They certainly vary in colour.

Hi everyone.

Kayleen - I've "gotta" be right sometime;

When I got this little damaged pup it seemed like it had been broken off above the "heel" and I didn't think it would survive but it did and it also seems to have battled though our cold winter this year. Unfortunately when I got it there was no cultural information with it so any hints you can pass on will be greatly accepted.

All the best, Nev.

Nev I have mine in the brom potting mix I always use and it sits on a bench. I will post a pic of my neglected ones I took the cuttings off later. We are having a cold, wet, windy day here today.

This is what I took the pieces off. I feel guilty so will pot them up when the rain stops.
