Nidularium, I think
I'm really a novice with Bromeliads. I bought one and promptly killed it and then replaced it in Nov 2007 with this one. I think it has survived basically because I have mostly neglected it. I have been on a mission lately to try to identify it. I think I have narrowed it down to either Nidularium innocentii var. striatum OR Nidularium rutilans variegated. The plant has never flowered since I have had it, though there is a large pup still attached to the mother and a second pup growing from the first. In appearance in photos, those two look very very similar. From what I have read, the difference is that the leaves of N. rutilans are thicker and stiffer. If I am correct then I think this is the correct ID. But if anyone has any other information or suggestions to offer, I'd be most grateful. It is still in the original plastic store pot and soil, so I am about to repot this and give it a bit of dignity finally, and it should have an identity.
