A few years ago I found a sorry looking bunch of Bromeliads sitting in the trash besind a second hand shop. They hadn't been watered for a long time and needed to be repotted. I brought them home and stuck them at the base of some tall plants The ones in the picture are at the base of a Corn Plant.

Is it a Billbergia of some kind? I know its probably to early to tall by the budding but I gonna shoot it every day or so and watch it progress to its blossum. I've been putting apple cores under the leaves, Could that help it Bloom? Thanks, Steve

Could be a Billbergia. Yow will know by the flowers. Check (photo index - Billbergias).

If it's a Bill, it's showing it by the elongated narrow leaves. When in the right light, Bills have stouter leaves in a tubular form.
