I purchased this Brom about two weeks ago at a local grocery store. The tag just said, "Bromeliad". Any ideas why type it is:

Also, it has some yellow spots on some of the leaves:

Any ideas what they might be? The poor thing wasn't packaged very well and had to have a repot when I got it home.

Thank you! I will make a note.

Is this one also a guzmania? I got it at the same time, but the flower stands up a bit more.

Yep. Many of the forms of Guzmania seen, especially in grocery stores, are hybrids of G. lingulata.

Thanks for the help. I've never had a Brom before, but I read up on them and thought they would do well on the spot I needed to fill. When I saw these, I grabbed them up. Now I'm addicted. I'd love a few more!
