The parentage is a mouthful: V. Sundance x ((Saundersii x procera) x Philipocoburgii) but is nice.
Ardens picture on the FCBS site looks a bit redder, are you growing yours in less light?
Saundersii and Philipocoburgii seem to be in a lot of Vriesea crosses with some spectectular results.
I dont think I have ever seen a photo of Bonfire on FCBS..there is one of Sundance
That's what I was gonna say hdd.
There isn't one as far as I know Rick. My plant and John's are all purple thru and thru.
Aptly-named brom, Gonz. I like the contrast between the leaves and branched spike. Looks like your birthday present is rewarding you with several pups as well. Congrats :)
Sorry I should learn to read, I thought Gonzers plant was a Sundance.
