Unknown Bromeliad
Can anyone identify this Bromeliad for me? The undersides of the leaves are purplish.

RE: Another ID please?

I don't know, Cherie, and it's hard to tell how true the colors are in your photo, but Hummel did a number of Aechmea hybrids that look similar to that. Check out both pages of the link below, particularly Ae. Bastantha, Candy Corn, Electra, Gigant, Hiawatha, Montezuma and Rajah, and see if any of them looks like a match to you.

Here is a link that might be useful: Hummel hybrid Aechmeas - FCBS

RE: Another ID please?

Thanks so much for the response and the link. Even after looking at the photos I am still not sure, I am leaning toward Montezuma or Hiawatha, or possibly Candy Corn. It is hard to tell, but at least I have some idea. It was given to me by someone who did not have an id, but I love the bloom.

Thanks again!
