Sorry, but that index falls under the heading of "when I have time" grin You could maybe post it on the Australian gardening bromeliad thread or on the Bromeliad discussion forum

Thanks, moon and Vestia. There are so many - I may never know. I may try the forum but it appears to have been very quiet for awhile. One of these days. :)

Well, after looking around for awhile this morning, it looks very close to 'Purple Cockatoo' ... or maybe a slightly "off" color of that.
