Another question

We bought this Vriesea about 12 mths ago. It was labelled Vriesea Belgese Hybrid. I've been looking for ages unsuccessfully trying to find it when the other day I came across one called Vriesea 'Belgische Hybride' on the FCBS site. The inflorescences look similar. Would they be the same plant but with a wrongly spelt label?

This is a pic of mine and the label that came with it.

RE: Another question

It does seem like a misspelling, Gail, but doesn't 'Belgische Hybride' just mean Belgian hybrid? If so, it could be anything.

Okay, I just checked the registry, and although it's not registered, that does seem to be considered a cultivar name for a particular plant rather than just a description. It's a very nice looking Vriesea too, lucky you!

Thanks. I thought it might have been mispelt by someone who had only heard the name spoken and didn't quite hear it right.
