So glad #bromeliad-flower last such a long time. Good thing, they can be a little pricey and only flower once #leafking #tropical

I just noticed, it’s growing new flower spikes under each old one. Just when I thought it was awesome enough it showed me wrong 😑 #foliagefriday they grow fast. A true beauty in our jungle backyard. I looked back on older pictures the down spikes had started, I just didn’t notice

Can we get a close up pic of this gorgeous specimen, David. My guess would be an Aechmea fendleri.

Okay I think I got it. Check it, let me know. I think it's a Aechmea ‘Del Mar’, Bromeliad ‘Dwarf Blue Tango’.
