Hello,  need to pick some brom brains.   Is Quesnelia Arvensis Rubra actually Quesnelia Quesneliana?Huh 

I have just been blessed with a beautiful pup of Quesnelia Quesneliana and its looks just like my Quesnelia Arvensis Rubra.

Did a google photo search and  I cant find any Quesnelia Arvensis Rubra?Huh Cry

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Graeme,


The big Aechmea is Bracteata and if you would like some seed I have tons of it still on the plant.

Michael, yes you are correct they all do look very similar, I must check with my friend who gave me the plant and see if she has a photo of the flower.  Thank you all for all your help

Arvensis
Notice the different colour as the ones on the left of the pot get afternoon sun.
I have had both quesneliana & avensis flower and they were much the same colour.

Alfina - the red -leaved Quesnelia remains a mystery regards the species variety in Australia. It has not been formally described by the taxonomists/botanists. I have seen it sold under a few Quesnelia species names, all with the "rubra" tagged on. I have grown and flowered all of those types, under various light conditions. My understanding of Quesnelia quesneliana is that of a softer leaved species, more stoloniferous (longer stolons), and slightly smaller than arvensis. Ques. ques also has a blunter-ended (at top) inflo from my experience, and like arvensis, remains green regardless of light. Although I have not checked for spines on the primary floral bracts of my red form of Quesnelia, I do not think it is as large and stiff in foliage as arvensis, and may well be a red form of testudo.
