Help with NOID

Posted by blue_heeler (My Page) on

I bought this brom at a market and it had no name. Walking towards it, it looked like the colouring of an Alcantarea Imperialis Rubra. On closer inspection it had spike on the edges of the leaves. The seller said it gets an orange flower on a spike and grows to a large plant. The leaves are not shiny but rather dull, so Aechmea Shining Light is out. Any ideas anyone?

could be Ae. manzanaresiana .. they were sold as tessmanii rubra for a few years from Peter Tristrams nursery . When the first one flowered at Whyanbeel I was stunned at the large infloresence . Pictures on fcbs do not do it justice .. I will send Kerry a picture to post // just cannot be bothered with photohosting ..
