Gonzer, is #3 spineless? If so, then it will certainly be a fasciata hybrid.

I can't comment on the name of the first one, but it certainly looks like a fasciata HYBRID rather than just a cv. of fasciata.

Second one is clearly a xNeomea, but which one? Exquisita, Nebula and Popcorn are all kind of similar looking, and all Hummel hybrids, so I'd start there.

I agree #3 appears to be a fasciata hybrid as well, but without a flower it'd be difficult to get much closer than that.

Yes "FELICIA"is a hybrid of Fasciata not a cultivar ,its been tissue cultured and was bred from the spineless form of fasciata most likely " Silver King " wich is an all silver scurfed form with nicely recurved leaves , the last photo could be an unflowered plant of " FELICIA ' or " Inca " there are several others like that, its certainly a fasciata hybrid ,the plants all look fairly similar ,size varies ,with the " FELICIA" being the largest grower.

A. 'Inca' has a tinge of red on the edges of the leaves. Its fairly easy to see, and I don't think the other fasciata hybrids have it, but then, I'm not an expert.
I thought Neomea 'Exquisita' for number 2.
Doesn't A. 'Felicia' have a beautiful flower. Are they yours Gonzer?

I apologise, I think I'm wrong! *gasp* it happens from time to time. I think its Aechmea 'Felicia' with the red edges, Richard, if you're there can you confirm?

Thanks to all for the quick replies. I was helping a friend on another forum who these plants belong to.
