Well the last day of three days of tests today, so letís hope these bloody doctors can now find something they can do to help me walk properly again, so I can really get stuck into all my re-potting.
Apart form Jean, where have all of the other forum members gone?
Jean Ė Good to see you posting again and you really made a grand entrance with all of the nice picís
As for the IDís of your plants
1. Bill. Hallelujah
2. Probably young Neo. Jewellery Shop (although should be more coloured at that size so perhaps need more light)
3. Neoregelia Nivea, which is a species.
4. Could be Ae. Organensis but without flowers itís not definite. There are many, many different forms of this one, see the FCBS Photo Index for examples of just a few. As well as that they breed regularly with other Aechmeas and usually the Organensis parent is dominant which results in even more ďlook alikesĒ
5. Could be Neo Break of Day but like Neo. Jewellery Shop should have more colour. I hang mine right up high beneath 75% beige shade cloth and Iíll post a pic below for comparison.
6. Sorry I donít know this one, but itís nice
7. Nidularium Fulgens, thereís no mistaking that spotted foliage
8. I donít know what it is but I would say it isnít Neoregelia Red Gold as it should be much more coloured at this size.
9. Sorry, I canít help here except to say definitely not Aechmea Blanchetiana, but post a pic again when it flowers. Although the shape says differently, thereís something about its colour that is remotely like a young Billbergia Dorothy Berg grown in low light (See bottom pic on FCBS Photo Index)
10. Could be a yellow Aechmea Blanchetiana, but it needs much more light to bring out the yellow colour. Down here on the South Coast of N.S.W. we grow them right out in the open and still donít get the great colour that growers in Queensland do.
That's about the best I can do for you Jean, maybe someone else has diferent ideas or can fill in some of the "holes".
Thatís about it for today and Iíll finish with a few more random picís 1. Neo Break of Day (Grown in high light) 2. Neo Pimiento,
3. Neo. Mon Petite x Neo Tangerine, 4. Tillandsia Bulbosa 5. Neoregelia Guinea (species)
