I bought a bunch of planters in the spring - two came with three bromeliads in each, four of which now have blooms...
Ken looks like you have Aechmea fasciata there.
Is fasciata very variable? I see it quite often in nurseries. etc. but the foliage is much more grey & pronounced banding with a pink inflorescence. Mine is green with little banding and much darker inforescence.
Just curious. I'm fairly new to bromeliads, except cryptanthus, which I have grown for many years.
There are many cultivars of fasciata. I doubt that you have a true fasciata.
