Hi all. I've been trawling through the bromeliad societies websites looking for the ID of this brom. The closest I can find is Aechmea racinae but can't find a lot of info on the net about it except that it is a parent of Fosters Favourite. Thanks.

Certainly looks like Ae racinae to me

RE: Is this Aechmea racinae?

Thank you :)

I did see the FCBS website but there isn't any description or any info like on how big it is supposed to be, etc and as there are sometimes several plants with very similar flowers I just wanted to make sure.
