I bought a house in September 2020. A clean pallet for another 15 years as I’ve recently left my tropical garden in Brisbane and moved to Ipswich.

Looks like Billbergia nutans to me (Queens Tears, Friendship Plant). Just smaller, it will grow.

@Annettenoosa thanks. The one in a more shadier position is very large. Older too. Perhaps that’s why I think they’re two varieties.

Alcantarea is a large brom, over a metre tall, which is what you are showing on this link. This picture is of Billbergia nutans, a small plant with blue, green and yellow flowers on a pink stem. Common name 'Queens Tears'. So, yes, not correctly named. 🙂

@Sussanah I think this is a bilbergia nutans (bromeliad family). Not Alcantarea, which is a huge plant ☺😚

@Sussanah not sure what the one without the flower is. The pink flower is Billbergia nutans, without doubt. The Alcantarea has a long spike over a metre tall in a metre plus tall brom, commonly with silverish leaves.

I know this Billbergia well because it was the first plant in the Bromeliad family I was given when I was about 9 yo. Loved it then, still do.
