Hi everyone.

John - That's some great arranging of wonderful colour you've shared with us.

There's no doubt, there is certainly a skill to arranging these beautiful plants to show them all at their best.

I reckon I have plants of equal quality and colour in my collection, however over the years I've tried on many occasions to arrange them so as to display them at their best, but to no avail. No matter what I do, they still just look like a group of nice brom's on a bench, and nothing special like you see where these talented people are able to turn a group of plants into something special. They certainly have that special artistic knack to achieve this; something I'm afraid I sadly lack.

Please pass on my congratulations for a job well done to the members who set up that display, it's certainly a good tonic for these old eyes.

Finally; what is the genus of the plant in the last picture? Is it some sort of Vriesea or perhaps a Tillandsia? Whatever it is, it’s certainly an attractive plant with its soft light grey/green foliage and pastel pink inflorescence and certainly deserves its place where it’s seemingly “floating on air” for all to see.

Thanks for sharing.

All the best, Nev.

Lovely display John. Like you Nev, I am hopeless at arranging plants.
I am interested in that last plant too please.

Lovely Broms.
Shame we won't see some of them over here.

Love hot Embers. Mine is pupping nicely.
John my Hohenbergia leopoldo-horsti flower is more open than the one in the pic. I do like that flower better.
Mine is nearly black and lives in full sun until about 3pm.

Hi everyone.

John - That's a great run down of your show prize winners and very much appreciated.

Kayleen - Is that the same Hohenbergia you sent me?  Although it hasn't flowered yet, my plant seems much more compact.

Likewise with the 'Hot Embers' pup you sent me; four pups already, so thankfully it's a good grower and should make up to a nice clump pretty quickly.

All the best, Nev.

Hi all, Thanks John for those stunning photos. Makes me very jealous not being there!

Every time you post a nice looking plant...it goes onto my wishlist and that this is very long! I( don't think I will every get a 1/4 of the list before I am bankrupt!

But don't mind me, KEEP POSTING!

Yes Nev that is the one I told you would take full sun. I think mine takes about 3yrs to flower.

Conrad I will be long gone before I ever get my "wish list" finished. Smiley Smiley

Hi everyone - "Wish Lists" - I see them as a bit like a work in progress - You achieve a bit of what you want and then the plan changes because you've seen something else you like and that's added to the plan. A bit like a continuing "never ending story".

All the best, Nev.

Hi everyone.

John - That's a great idea in picture one where the facts about the genus are explained. Definitely a good learning tool for growers at all levels as well as the members of the public. Are these descriptive sheets shown for every genus? Certainly something worth putting in the suggestion box at our society for the committee to consider for our next show.

Kayleen - I wondered the same thing about that last plant - It looks like a species with similar foliage to Vr. flammea.
