Hi bromeliad lovers! Today I headed south to Sarasota to check out their bromeliad club's show. I took lots of pictures to share. Let's start with Neo. "Purple Star Variegated".

Guess I'll just have to compete and post a pic or 2. I have only 1 of these; none of this one to trade for yet.

I take a picture of the plant and then I take a picture of the tag with the plant's name on it. So I know the photo after the plant is its name.

Aha! Thanks... I wondered how hard it would be to keep the photo and name straight.

Envious that you have access to all those wonderful shows! Kristi
