Bromeliads up a little closer and personal.

For a change of pace, a photo. I liked this colour scheme and alien appearance.

Bromeliad - Aechmea 'Coral Beauty'.

  1. Hi,
    What a gorgeous flower, I love the colours, very nice photo. :)

    • Hi Mags, thanks for that. Sorry for not answering your comment. Somehow I missed it. Hope things are going well.

  2. You wouldn’t know the species, by any chance? We were given one, but can’t find specific cultural notes re planting, watering, feeding needs etc.
    Thanks.

    • Hi Lynne, not being a clever plant person I went looking and found the following site if you’d like to check them out. The name/species? appears to be Aechmea (Coral Beauty) and I think they grow fairly easily. At my Mums place they don’t get much special attention. Depending where you are in the world, the latitude of my Mums place is around 33 degrees sth. A bit cooler for you if in NZ. Hope this helps;

  3. So prompt! Thank you, Bruce. Now I’ve visited the site you suggested, I know a little more – maybe enough to not kill off hubby’s second one
