zuzu,
ohhh, sooo very pretty!
Glad to see Coral Berry's mama. Thanks for the added info on her too! I'll keep my fingers crossed I will see Loja and Silver Urn bloom someday! I would love to see your floral arrangements made with dried bromeliads come Christmas okay?

NMS, thanks

saba, sorry your climate is not too conducive for bromeliads. I would try again tho.

More talk or pics or both on bromeliads? Join in!! Okay GT, since we have more participation, can we see more of your bromeliads?

Thanks F'dazed.
I'll try to remember to take some pics at the holidays.

I've been looking at your second pic -
it looks like a Billbergia to me, but I'm not sure of the species ...
it seems a little sparse for B. pyramidalis - but not sparse enough for B. amoena -
I'm leaning more toward pyramidalis.
Maybe future inflos will be beefier --- then again, maybe it's a cross.

zuzu, I agree, but it could be that this flower is at its end, fizzling away... mine do look like that ....

ok, here is my Portea petropolitana extensa, it is reeeeaaally tall:

Ok even though I have 12 different varieties of Broms I only have one that is blooming. Why I don't know :dont know:, anyhow here is the plant. I can't remember the name and I have had this plant since 2004. I purchased it from a Bromeliad show at the Mall from the Master Gardeners Club.

zuzu,
Thanks so much for helping to ID my bromeliad. You put me on the right track as it closely resembles Billbergia pyramidalis var. concolor.

Hey GT,
That brome was at it's peak when I took the pic. Wow on your very tall Portea for height. Does it stand erect for a while? Thanks for showing us that one as well as your Tillandsia.

Very nice bali!

Hi Kellyntx1, very nice, I really like that one, a kind person here was nice enough to send me one like yours a while back because she knew I liked it so much. Thanks GT

Hey mr
Pretty! You mentioned you have 12 different varieties. Have they bloomed for your in the past along the way?

bali, have your bloomed as well along the way?

I've collected quite a few bromeliads this past year from local people as well as Bromeliad shows. I'm in the process of cataloging them as most have ID's, (thank goodness) but some do not. It will be an arduous task I'm been putting off tho.

New Orleans weather is so unpredicable. I've had bromeliads bloom in Febuary.

Let's keep this thread going by adding bromeliads as they bloom and talk about them as well! It would be a great reference for plantswap.

Does anyone grow bromes in pots as house plants? I used to and had a really pretty one that bloomed a lot like the queen tears one.
