Hi Plantaholic
Doesn't look like anybody wants to talk to you on this one. How do I find your photo of Aechmea 'yellow brazil'.

I'm going to take a stab in the dark for you with the hint you've given ie: leptantha.

A big yellow Aechmea you're looking at could be Ae. blanchetiana, another possibility with the hint you have given is Aechmea eurycorymbus, this is a large grey/green plant with a magnificent golden/red/orange, branched spike to 2.5mtr tall (7-8ft), this plant doesn't like as much sun as Ae. blanchetiana who is a full sun loving plant & comes in red,orange,golden & green leaf forms.

Hope this helps, Pinkbroms

hello pinkbroms

thanks for your input! the only thing i know is that it can be seen at bullis bromeliads ( check it out and see what you think.

i just purchased a 'yellow brazil' from ebay and its definitely different from blanchetiana and eurycorymbus (i love those too). in fact, i love all the aechmeas. LOL

Hi plantaholic

I checked out Bullis's for you, I would be pretty confident in saying it is a very well grown Aechmea emmerichiae. It definately fits that group of things, read more in Uncle Derek says.

Hi plantaholic

I forgot about Aechmea rubens, it also fits this group.
