It's very soft on top and undersides of leaves, covered in small white hairs. 17/6/2019

This is GORGEOUS! Are the leaves real thin? If so, I am guessing it is Bromeliad. A flower will tell for sure. 😏💗

@lovestogarden thank you, I found it at my local fruit/veg shop and thought it was rather unusual so got it. Yes I believe it's more likely a bromeliad as the leaves are quite thin and do resemble other broms in shape.

I spent some time looking at photos of Bromeliaceae and wondered if it was a Dyckia, but found nothing like it. It is very #unique.

@lovestogarden thanks for that. I've never heard of that genus #dyckia before, so I looked it up and I agree it does have similar characteristics. I wonder if my specimen is a hybrid? So far I've found 1 other picture on the internet if my exact plant but it was just a photography collection with no further info Unfortunately. The hunt continues!

Oh, that should be unallowed...photos without an ID😠! 😂 It is frustrating. A hybrid is most likely, but keep looking. It is amazing. The flower will really help wittle down the possibilities. Keep me posted on the beauty.

@lovestogarden someone ID'd it as the above Orthophytum sp. I had never heard of this genus either!

Oh, me either. The 'Ortho' makes sense. 🦷 There are just so many names to know and such slight differences. I am so happy you got the ID! 👏👏👏 💗 Thanks for letting me know. 🤓
