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.
