Hi everyone - Well it's the end of another year and how fast it seems to have gone.

Maybe it's just that I'm getting older that the years seem to pass quicker than they did previously or maybe it's because it now takes me longer to finish all the chores such as re-potting. This seems never ending and one chore that I never seem to be able to catch up with.

Anyway, as a friend once said; it keeps me out of the pub and off the street, but more importantly it provides me with an interest I enjoy.

To end the year I'd just like to share with you a few pictures of some of the random plants in my collection.

Good morning and a Happy New Year to you all.

John – That’s an interesting looking lot of seedling you’ve posted with some nice surprises among them.

I especially like the colouring of the Neoregelia 'Fall in Love' x ‘Skotaks Tiger’ and it’s interesting to see how the ‘Skotaks Tiger’ has influenced the increase in the size of the leaf spines.   

They're attractive and unusual marking you’ve achieved on my "pick of the Neo's"; the Neo 'Barbarian' x smithii cross. The interesting effect the smithii has had on the fine spotting of the ‘Barbarian’ making for unusual markings somewhere between spots and blotches; much the same effect that Liza achieved with her Neo. ‘Blueberry Tart’ (Neo. Granada x pauciflora) x smithii).

Being a ”Neo. Man”, it hurts me though, to say that the real standout has to be the Vriesea gigantea var seideliana x fosteriana hybrid, it’s a beautiful looking plant and one anyone would be proud to have in their collections.

Well done John, and I hope we see many more like this in this new year.

Thks,for your comments. These are a small assortment from 2016 postings as we are away relaxing. Yes for us vriesea are on top but neos are faster and easier to grow. There is no sign of the above vriesea flowering so am very hopeful it will be reasonable size form+ nice markings that I can then use to put colour on to in the next round. I shall take some updates of it + that neo Fall in Love x St soon.

Not broms but relaxing here this morning.

Catching any fish?
Son & family are at Pottsville [northern NSW] and 9yrold Bella rang to tell us she had caught a 20cm bream. Very exciting for her first fish.

We are off to Inskip Point for 5 days on Wednesday. Hopefully we will get some fish.
Beautiful rain here at the moment but I think it is passing over.

Hi everyone.

Conrad - Wow! What a blast from the past, I thought you'd forgotten all about us Conrad. How's the rehabilitation after your accident going, are you able to get back to working with your brom's again now?

Anyway, it's good to have you back again and the seasons greeting to you too, and hoping 2017 is a better year for you than 2016 was.

All the best, Nev.

Hi everyone.

Kayleen – Sorry, but I’ve only just seen your post. When I open the thread this morning I scrolled straight to the bottom and when I saw Conrad’s post I was so surprised that I forgot to look above it to see if there were any others.

I think your plant might be a xVriecantarea; possibly xVriecantarea ‘Golden King’. Unfortunately the pic’s on the BCR don’t show an open flower for comparison with the one in your picture; anyway, that’s my guess. What do others think?

I found the attached picture of a Neo seedling while going through some stuff yesterday; it's a picture of Neo. 'Barbarian' x Self, and I thought as John put up a pic. of his ‘Barbarian’ hybrid, I’d throw this in as well.

I did this cross a few years back at the same time a friend from the bromeliad society did the same cross; the only thing I can’t be certain of, is whether it’s one of mine or one of his.

When I look more carefully at the picture though, I see in the bottom left corner, part of a bench covered in “Mini Orb” corrugated iron sheeting which is what I experimented with in 2015 on some of my benches to stop pots tipping over, so I think the plant possibly is one of my hybrids, all I have to do now is try and find it again to see if it has improved with maturity.

Neo. 'Barbarian' x Self

Looks a nice plant Nev. Nice shape & colour.

That looks like xVriecantarea ‘Golden King’. Might throw it onto the brom facebook page and see what the answer is.

Kayleen, I have not seen your very interesting plant before but Nevs answer looks a possibility. Also try crossing a foliage vriesea on to it, if its a bigeneric you have a high chance it will take. What name are you under in face book?
