I'm stumped on this one.

Big Pine Key, FL(Zone 11)

I picked this Brom up from a Mom and Pop nursery in Marathon Fl. I recall purchaceing one from them at least 20 years ago. I have it in a 9" wire basket and just noticed it blooming yesterday. I figured it is a good time to try for an ID.

Looks like it could be a xCryptbergia but I don't know which one.

Nice. Not a neo. Have no clue.

Looks exactly like my cryptobergia Red Burst.

Red Burst was going to be my guess too.

After reviewing images on the web I will agree on the cryptobergia Red Burst.
Thanks everyone - you guys are great.
