Hello, I want someone to confirm this name for that plant. I also have another name; Aechmea fulgens var discolor albo-marginata roseo-lineata !

Here is a link that might be useful: http://inlinethumb17.webshots.com/6928/2509071510060500591S425x425Q85.jpg

I'd go with the second one, although I've never heard the roseo-lineata part. FFF is a more tubular plant with a sparse, pendant inflorescence. Yours is typical of Ae. fulgens in flower and form.

Hi Frankie ,Lisa is correct ,its Ae fulgens var Discolor ,and as she said ,never heard of the Roseo -liniate bit either , Ae FFF is very different in growth and flower spike .

OK, it's not FFF. We have also a albo-marginata but no red-pink. I'm confused with these two. I will send you a pic of the second one. May be it's not a discolor variety.

I have that last one, I had to go check the tag. It says: "AE. MINIATA DISCOLOR ROSEALINIATA ALBOMARGINATED". That's just as it is written, I'm not sure if it is correct, or spelled correctly (probably not), or if anything other than the genus should be capitalized, since it doesn't say cv. or var. on the tag.

So I guess I lied when I said I'd never heard the roseo-lineata part. I'd just forgotten it, although this is apparently miniata and not fulgens. At least that's my excuse. ;-)

I though that this second pic is Aechmea fulgens var. discolor 'Albomarginata Rosea-Lineata' ! I'm a little bit confused here...

RE: aechmea Foster.s Favorite Favorite ?

You and me both, Frankie!

As you can see, however, the first of the pics just above does have red lineation, and a more miniata shaped inflo.

The second one looks like an albomarginated form of fulgens v. discolor, but I'm not seeing anything that would give it the name "rosea-lineata". Sounds like label confusion.

A Sport of 'Electrica' also nick named also as 'Roseo- Lineata'. The plant also had an odd habit of the flower mutating and showing odd forms. It could have also sported off a variegate form.

Hi Guys

Don't forget the Roseo-Lineata is but a Nursery naming or a made up bit of describing their plant by a collector as it has no botanical or taxonomical meaning, in other words drop it from your label.
Apparently it appears as though most of the variegated plants in the fulgens/miniata group are HYBRIDS, look to Ae. Reginald etc.

Frankie I still have your plant in 2nd photo tagged as Ae. fulgens var. discolor variegated, that's the pinker of your 2 plants. That 2nd plant is also variegated not Albo. it has stripes in the leaf other than the white edges.
