can anybody identify this brom for us ?
I can't help you with your brom but a warm hello from a fellow townsvillian.
Good luck with your search.
Hi bh, It looks possibly like an Acemea variety, you'll know better once it flowers. You could try posting it on the bromeliad forum.
g'day tropical3 and roybe, have found out it is an alcantarea imperialis with a few people after pups. also found out how big it grows, up to 5m tall. takes about 10 years to flower so we will be waiting a while. catcha.
I think your brom is truly an androlepis skinneri. Looks similar to an alcantarea, but there are differences also. Please google it. I have both types of specimens in FL. Grows large also, and can tolerate quite a bit of sun. The more sun, the more pink/wine color the leaves acquire.
this reply will be a bit late and not sure you'll even see it, but this looks exactly like my Werauhia sanguinolenta. Mine is the rubra, and is looking a bit more like yours at present as it's getting too much sun, if it is a Werauhia sanguinolenta rubra, they like the shade. The more shade they get the darker the foliage, towards almost black.
