ID Please with Question
I am just starting my Bromeliad Collection. Early on I purchased these two unmarked plants at a local store. Both of them are beautiful. The first with the tall red spike is 13" tall by 23" wide, including the spiked flower it is 33" tall. I would love to know what type it is as it has two pups emerging out of the center of the cup right next to the spike. It has a very smooth leaf with no sharp edges. In all my reading I can not find a plant where the pups come out of the center of the plant. Big Guess Here: a Vriesia Splendens
The next one is 10" tall and 10 " wide. The leaf does have small sharp edges. It is beautiful and starting to pup. It looks like the pup is emerging on a very short stolen of about 1/2 inch. I love to research but can not find these plants. I though this one may be a Aechmea Zebrina?
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
